"The book is hugely comprehensive, drawing on a wide bibliography and some materials available only in manuscript. It is a very useful reference work." Nicolette Zeeman, Studies in the Age of Chaucer "His excellent study of this authorized method of reading does for the early Middle Ages what the work of scholars such as Judson Allen, Rita Copeland, Douglas Kelly, Alastair Minnis, and Marjorie Curry Woods has done for the later Middle Ages...It is essential reading for anyonne who seeks to understand the otherness of medieval litertaure." Martin Camargo, Modern Philology "This is an excellent book, a very important book which should be read or at least consulted by all students of the Middle Ages..." Manuscripta
