J. Stephen Russell:
Chaucer and the Trivium: The Mindsong of the Canterbury Tales - new book

ISBN: 9780813016375

ID: 865869955

J. Stephen Russell examines the impact that Chaucer´s education had on his greatest work, the Canterbury Tales, and demonstrates that understanding the nature of education in the Middle Ages, especially linguistic education, provides important insights into Chaucer´s poem. Specifically, he shows that the medieval trivium (a curriculum of logic, grammar, and rhetoric) conveyed attitudes about expression, communication, and personality subtly but powerfully different from modern attitudes and that a recognition of these differences completely changes the nature of poems such as the general prologue and the tales of the knight, man of law, and clerk. Russell begins with a concise, lucid account of the medieval trivium, synthesizing a variety of sources in an engaging explanation of such potentially dry subjects as grammar and conceptual hierarchies. He then examines four parts of the Canterbury Tales, providing insight into Chaucer´s method of presenting information about the pilgrims in the ´´General Prologue´´, the role of language in the ´´Man of Law´s Tale´´, the definition of man in the ´´Knight´s Tale´´, and the Artes in the ´´Clerk´s Tale´´. Finally, he extends his discussion to the ´´Tale of Melibee´´ and the tales of the wife of Bath, franklin, and nun´s priest and suggests avenues for further research based on the trivium. For the modern reader, this work re-creates the mental parameters of a medieval education and provides a view of Chaucer´s conception of the way the world is organized, the foundation of his intellectual and artistic development.
