Illustrations of Chaucer. Drawn chiefly from Deschamps

Lowes, John Livingston

The following notes are not intended, in any instance, to suggest new sources from which Chaucer may have drawn. If they add fresh vividness here and there to the background of contemporary manners and customs against which some of Chaucer's lines demand projection, they will have served their turn. That they throw interesting light upon certain salient differences between Deschamps's art and that of Chaucer is also true. But consideration of that I wish to reserve until another time.
