Acknowledgments

Gratitude is due Harvard and its production of The Canterbury Tales for the image of Chaucer's Wife of Bath, as excerpted from the Ellesmere Manuscript.  Thanks too to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for the late Prof. Jane Zatta's Chaucer page, including the beautiful graphic of “Geoffrey Chaucer reading from Troilus and Criseyde.”
