The Dynamics of Sloth: Fin Amour and Divine Mercy in John Gower's Confessio Amantis

Zaerr, Linda Marie. "The Dynamics of Sloth: Fin Amour and Divine Mercy in John Gower's Confessio Amantis." PhD thesis, University of Washington, 1986.

Review

Zaerr traces the shifting meanings of sloth and fine amour and the shifting relationship between Genius and Amans throughout Book 4. "Amans is led, though he has not requested it or realized he needed it, along a very complex and at times paradoxical path to an understanding of a love completely different from that he had sought." Directed by Miceal Vaughan. [PN. Copyright The John Gower Society. JGN 7.2]
