- Explores relations between the late-medieval debate on religious images and imagery in literature, including detailed assessment of the portrait of Chaucer that is included in manuscripts of Thomas Hoccleve's "Regiment of Princes." Assesses the function of the portrait as "analogous to the use of images in religious meditation" and comments on "strong affinities" between the portrait and the old man of the prologue to the "Regiment."
