Current Research

The 1807 Chaucer
A few years ago I identified an edition of The Poetical Works of Geoffrey Chaucer, published in 1807, that seems to have gone unnoticed by scholars. At best, early scholars of Chaucer seem to have thought it was a reprint of Bell's 1783 edition. In fact, it is a new edition, and my research has focused on identifying exactly how it is different from previous editions. I'm currently writing a monograph that identifies and explains all of these features of the 1807 Chaucer.

Continuations of The Squire's Tale
Between the sixteenth and the nineteenth centuries, nine authors (some well-known, like Spenser and Milton) wrote continuations of Geoffrey Chaucer's The Squire's Tale. My investigation focuses on the continuations to determine how these later writers responded to the unusual characteristics of the tale. I hypothesise that each writer saw The Squire's Tale as an ideal vehicle for their own socio-political agendas. In particular, I believe that Chaucer's radical interests in race and cultural difference were particularly hot topics for the later writers, who felt the need to impart their own views on the topic, sometimes by obliteration.
