Quinn's interpretation of Chaucer's "The Legend of Good Women" prompts investigation of the use of "oral" and "written" styles of narration in his other works. The argument is extended to three of the "Canterbury Tales" to show how oral performance theory could affect their interpretation as well. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
