Sinopsis:

  On its original publication this classic title made sense of a difficult poem for the first time and brought that poem to the center of a concern with the nature of tradition, textuality, and language that is current today.  The book forces late-medieval philosophy out of the closet and into a relation with literature, and it validates the use of contemporary methods and sensibility in literary criticism.  In Sheila Delany's view, House of Fame portrays the ambiguity of old or new communication, with skeptical fideism as the means of transcending ambiguity.  

Book Description:

From reviews of the first edition:

"Fresh insights into Chaucer's poem."--Medium Aevum

"A glimpse into the possible dynamics of Chaucerian ambiguity."—Speculum

"Delany has placed Chaucerian scholars in her debt. . . . She has, most important of all, acknowledged that the real subject of the poem is poetry itself, and that Chaucer's concern throughout is to explore artistic problems."--Modern Philology
