Review

Gower finally joins the ranks of the elect: David and Simpson include an excerpt from Confessio Amantis, the tale of Tereus (5.5546-7074) in the new edition of English literature’s holy canon (pp. 319-31). Their introduction briefly surveys Gower’s life and works, and it offers a few comments on the structure of the poem, which culminates, in this account, in Amans’ reintegration “with the psyche of which he is ideally a part.
