CALABRESE, Michael A. Chaucer's Ovidian Arts of Love. Gainesville: University Press of Florida, (1994). First Edition. Pp. (i)-x,1-170,(4). 8vo, blackcloth covers with gilt lettering to spine. "This book is the fullest study of Ovid and Chaucer available and the only one to focus on love, desire, a nd the gender-power struggles that Chaucer explores through Ovid. Michael Calabrese begins by recounting medieval biographical data on Ovid, indicating the breadth of Ovid's influence in the Middle Ages and the depth of Chaucer's knowledge of the Roman poet's life and work. He then examines two of Chaucer's most enduring and important works - Troilus and The Wife of Bath'sPrologue and Tale - in light of Ovid's turbulent corpus, maintaining that both poems ask the same Ovidian question: What can language and game do forlovers? Calabrese concludes by examining Chaucer's views of himself as a w riter and of the complex relations between writer, text, and audience." -from the dj. Vg in vg dj. 25.00
