Chaucer's Chain of Love
"This book explores the Chain of Love, a Platonic metaphor for the invisible bond between Creator and Creation, for the space between beginnings and ends of temporal succession, and for the heard, or unheard, word between thought and deed, or between contrition and satisfaction in the process of penitence."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
