Editorial Reviews

"This study, in its learned laughter, should be snapped up by anybody who wondered, back in class, where all the devout or dirty jokes in Chaucer were buried."—Popmatters.com“There is a tendency to assume that anything that happened in history is not funny. Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog performs the vital service of showing that the Middle Ages can be fun, and, as a side effect, reminding us that people were as capable of laughing in the fourteenth century as we are today . . . maybe more so.”—Terry Jones, Director of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and author of Chaucer’s Knight: The Portrait of a Medieval Mercenary “While disappointed to discover that I am not the Chaucer blogger, I nonetheless commend this edifying tome.”—David Wallace, Judith Rodin Professor, University of Pennsylvania
