This book originated from my interest in the often neglected fifteenthcentury narrative. I began studying John Lydgate Temple of Glas while I was teaching late medieval poetry at the University of Perugia in and I soon realized the importance of the mirror metaphor in the work of Lydgate and his contemporaries.

The reasons for the fascination the mirror exerted on these. The items, from widely diverse sources, are fitted into a pattern which forms a mosaic of fourteenth-century life, picturing Chaucer's London and illustrating chronologically typical aspects of the life span of people from various social classes and occupations.

Mirror of the World is true to the format of all of the others: each key character has a sub-plot story that neatly wraps up and brings everyone back together at the end of the volume.

I'm not a big fan of this style because it prevents deep development of any one of the characters; still, I'm invested and looking forward to the final book in Reviews:   Chaucer’s own poetic development from the mannered medieval style of The Book of the Duchess to the rich, comic, human complexity of The Canterbury Tales reflects the transformation of his world.

Having recently finished Barbara Tuchman's A Distant Mirror, I was eager to revisit Chaucer and get a feel for the literature of the calamitous 14th century. I was struck by how cheerful the whole thing was--bawdy, funny, touching and full of memorable characters/5(59). Craftsmen and laborers ride side by side with the gentry on the road to the shrine of St.

Thomas à Becket, and their discussions and arguments about ethical issues mirror their changing world. The pilgrims' conversations and stories also reveal their individual personalities, and Chaucer's vivid, realistic characterizations assured the Tales an instant and enduring success.

This book investigates the mirror, as a material object and in visual and verbal imagery, and examines its relationship to ideas of knowledge, perception and human subjectivity in various socio-cultural and technological contexts.

Within this book the rich potential of interdisciplinary collections is evident as. Characters Edit. Jacob Reckless: The protagonist of the book, Jacob is a year-old who discovers a secret world behind the mirror in his missing father's escapes to the Mirrorworld for weeks or months at a time.

He views family and friends as a burden, and prefers a life where the consequences of his actions do not harm those he loves. Soon to be a NETFLIX Original Series.
