Embarrassment of Riches.

CLA Journal 7 (1963): 1-17.

Interprets the GP description of the Prioress as a satire of an institution rather than a critique of an individual, offering the reading as a prolegomenon to a comparative discussion of the challenges of teaching English and teaching foreign language studies in modern educational institutions. Delivered as an address to the Twenty-Third Annual Conference of the College Language Association, Washington, D.C., April 19, 1963.
