interdisciplinary forum, and showcasing the resources of the host

CFP: Moral Chaucer? Ethical Theory and the Premodern Text (9/15/04;
collection)

A forthcoming collection of essays seeks to (re)engage the question of
"moral Chaucer."

Chaucer's immediate successors credited him with "pleasance" coupled
with "sentence," and some compared him with the great moral
philosophers Aristotle, Cicero, and Seneca. For later generations
Chaucer would come to be distinguished for his geniality and ironic
detachment in sharp contrast to the dogmatism and dullness of so many
contemporary moralists. Only recently (notwithstanding the exegetical
criticism of the mid-twentieth-century) have critics begun to
re-examine and describe Chaucer's "ethics."
