Contributed by Chris Holmes

Dr. Dyani Taf, Lecturer in English at IC, has published an article on Chaucer in the prestigious journal, Studies in Philology.  

Dr. Taff’s article examines the power dynamics of erotic secret-keeping and revelation in Geoffrey Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde. She examines Chaucer’s use of competing discourses of secrecy (fin'amors, romance, fabliau, and epic history) in order to draw attention to the fantasies in which his characters—and by implication his readers—indulge about alternative actions within and endings for the narrative.

The article, 

  1. "Love that oughte ben secree": Secrecy and Alternate Endings in Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde.” Appears in the Fall 2019 issue of the journal.
