'our englisshe' and Everyone's Latin: the Fasciculus Morum and Gower's Confessio Amantis.

Yeager, R.F. "'our englisshe' and Everyone's Latin: the Fasciculus Morum and Gower's Confessio Amantis." South Atlantic Review 46 (1981), pp. 41-53. ISSN 0277-335X

Review

Argues the Confessio's Latin prose marginalia and verse headlinks are consciously used by Gower both to comment on and illuminate the English poetry. This mixture of language has some affinity with the Fasciculus Morum tradition, and may be used to clarify some of Gower's stylistic concerns. [PN. Copyright the John Gower Society. JGN 1.1]
