History Lessons from the End of Time: Gower and The English Rising of 1381

Lynn Arner, assistant professor of English, had an article titled “History Lessons from the End of Time: Gower and The English Rising of 1381” published in Clio: A Journal of Literature, History and the Philosophy of History, Vol. 31, no. 3 (Spring 2002): 237-255. Using a methodology in dialogue with British cultural studies, the piece examines the ways in which Gower's “Confessio Amantis” addressed insurgents in the wake of The English Rising of 1381.
