An analysis of Chaucer's complex narrative voice must be carried out mainly on the background of rhetorical and stylistic analyses, rather than on the basis of dramatic, psychological or epistemological considerations. This is the starting point of this book, in which Dr. Klitgård sets out to explore the narrative voice in The Knight's Tale in relation to Chaucer's own work, his direct sources and his historical context.
Klitgård shows how the narrator operates on the basis of contrasting styles of rhetoric, in the tension between seriousness, high style and involvement on the one hand, and humour, realism and distance on the other.
