in the Age of Chaucer Bibliography
A colossal endeavor by Prof. Mark Allen of UTSA; this is one of the most
useful tools available for the study of Chaucer, a searchable, annotated
bibliography of every book and article written about Chaucer for the last
several years. It will eventually go back about 25 years. The annotations
are excellent and will give you a good idea whether or not you need to look
at the work.
This bibliography is now available on a website, "fully searchable and web-friendly" indeed.
Review: Annotated & Indexed Biblio
"Annotated and Indexed Bibliography of the first 30 years of The
Chaucer Review. From "Abraham" to "Zitter," scholars
have published nearly 800 articles in the first 30 volumes of the premier
Chaucer journal, and they are all listed and summarized here. The subject
index is searchable using the Find function of your browser, and you can
use the article numbers there to find the essays you want in the bibliography.
For example, if you go to the index and search for "anti-Semitism,"
you will find eight entries, numbered 19, 139, 268, 279, 324, 377, 747,
798. In the bibliography, search for 268, and you will find Frank, Hardy
Long. "Seeing the Prioress Whole." 25 (1991): 229-37 with a summary
of his argument. The bibliography is a large file and takes a while to load,
but it is a great resource." (thanks to Alan Baragona for this description).
The site describes itself in this fashion: "The Essential Chaucer
is a selective, annotated bibliography of Chaucer studies from 1900-1984.
It was first published in 1987 by G. K. Hall and Mansell Publishers Limited.
The bibliography is divided into almost 90 topics, including themes, techniques,
and individual works by Chaucer."

Here are online versions of
the Latin text of these

astonishing German website on Ovid. It has many of the Heroides and other Ovidian texts in

Ars amatoria (The Art of Love).
An essential text on Christian love; introduction to the concepts of "use" (uti)

The Latin text of
these excerpts is also provided.
