Maria Wickert: Studies in John Gower

Studies in John Gower is a translation of Maria Wickert’s Studien zu John Gower, the book that began the modern study of the Vox Clamantis. It is a monograph in six chapters, the first five on various aspects of the Vox — textual development, the vision of the Peasants’ Revolt, influence of the medieval sermon, the open letter to Richard II, world view — and the sixth a penetrating study of Gower’s narrative technique in the Confessio Amantis.
