This study reveals for the first time the full extent of Chaucer's use of astronomy in his work and sheds new light on the poet's character, literary techniques, and wider purposes. Part I discusses the physical, astronomical, astrological, and geomantic elements of Chaucerian cosmology, providing an introduction to the history of the techniques of medieval astronomy, and argues that Chaucer was indeed the author of the treatise on the equatorium. Part II identifies astronomical allegory in more than a dozen of Chaucer's works.
