Crafting Memory.

In Holly A. Crocker and D. Vance Smith, eds. Medieval Literature: Criticism and Debates (New York; Routledge, 2014), pp.183-91.

Explores late-medieval literary "intermingling of craft, memory, and loss" in representations of known or knowable facts or truth, arguing that in Adam, HF, KnT, and BD Chaucer, unlike some of his contemporaries, is generally "skeptical" about the "utility of craft analogies to represent any essential truth about poetry or the self."
