Introduction: Placing the Past.

The Oxford Handbook of Chaucer (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2020), pp. 1-7.

Argues that every handbook or guide to Chaucer is invested in time. Demonstrates how the essays in this volume bring together noted Chaucerians alongside experts in other fields. Provides an overview of previous handbooks and guides to Chaucer, and contends that this volume reflects advances in Middle English studies, in particular, from queer studies and the history of religion.
