Abstract

A welcome development in literary studies of the last decade or so has been the emergence of a serious and extensive engagement not only with the history but also with the archaeological materiality of the past in relation to literature; the ‘past’ comprising not only the context from which works of literature originally derived but also the multitudinous pasts through which they have been transmitted. There is, however, still a great deal to be explored and discussed in terms both of what we can and what we should try to do under the aegis of ‘Literature and Archaeology’, and, consequently, how we may go about that. It is precisely in that light that I offer a contribution to this volume which involves questioning and maybe problematizing some of the key ideas implicit in its theme, yet still in connexion with a constructive reading of one of the most enigmatic poems of the master of Middle English writing, Geoffrey Chaucer.
