Sample text

Regardless of the impetus, it is apparent that following the Renaissance readers evince a growing interest in the real persons and personalities of poets, while authorial sincerity is widely endorsed as a standard to which literary writers are expected to conform. 108 Not all scholars were so confused, however, and later chapters will demonstrate that some “Men of Letters” sharply countered the literal readings of their contemporaries by astutely emphasizing the imaginary, creative employment of literary personae.

With the querelle de la Rose as a kind of terminus ad quem, I have now demonstrated the continuity and centrality in the Middle Ages of PERSONA A N D PERSONA LITIES 25 literary analysis conducted in terms of narrative poses and authorial selfconstructions. It goes without saying that the list of medieval authors who used and experimented with personae is a substantial one that includes the aforementioned Boethius, Chrétien de Troyes, Dante, Jean de Meun, and other prominent authors from the continent such as Juan Ruiz, Guillaume de Machaut, Jean Froissart, and Giovanni Boccaccio; in England, the foremost examples are Chaucer and his contemporaries John Gower and William Langland.

146 Despite this view, Lawton does cite the persona-construct throughout his study (describing “open” and “closed” personae), but simply does not favor the term itself, as is seen in his discussion of Troilus and Criseyde’s complex narrator: It is unclear to what extent one may justifiably talk of a narratorial persona at all: unexpectedly, Chaucer retains a closed figure of some complexity, and makes it seem open, virtually transparent. It becomes the voice of performance, stressing both the fact and the fictional nature of the poem.
