Susannah and the "Merchant's Tale."

Speculum 35 (1960): 275-79.

Argues that Daniel 13.20 is a source of or influence on details of MerT 5.2138-48, and suggests that pictorial representations of Susannah and the Elders and details from the alliterative poem "Susannah" reveal ironic dimensions in Chaucer's scene of January and May in a closed garden.
