Talking Chauce, with Peter W. Travis

Tue, 13 Apr 2010 10:40:36 -0400

Peter W. Travis, the Henry Winkley Professor of Anglo-Saxon and English Language and Literature at Dartmouth, is the winner the 2009 Warren-Brooks Award for Outstanding Literary Criticism, for his book Disseminal Chaucer: Rereading the Nun’s Priest’s Tale (University of Notre Dame Press, 2009).
