This collection gathers in one place the essays that have done most to shape the modern critical discussion of the Confessio Amantis, and illustrates, by the choice of the landmarks of Gower criticism, how the study of the poem has evolved. It also provides representative examples of major approaches to the poem and selected studies of its most important aspects The essays provide a valuable indication of precisely what kinds of challenges the Confessio Amantishas posed for modern readers; they will provide the groundwork for all future study of the Confessio
