Professor Edwards will discuss the history of modern editing of Chaucer and the ways in which it obscures a proper understanding of what appear to have been his intentions as these are reflected in the manuscripts of his works, particularly his Canterbury Tales.
The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception – all are welcome.
About the speaker: Tony Edwards is Professor of Medieval Manuscripts at the University of Kent.
