This book provides an overview of the various ways in which modern critical theory has impacted on Chaucer studies over the last 15 years. It shows how the Canterbury Tales have been radically "opened up" by feminist, Lacanian, Bakhtimian, deconstructive, semiotic, and anthropological theory, to name a few. The introduction to the volume examines in some detail the relation between the individual strengths of each of these approaches and the ways in which a "postmodernist" Chaucer is seen as reflecting them all.
