 It has been remarked by Lord Bacon, in one of his happy illustrations, that time is like a river, which, as it flows on, bears on its surface only what is light and trivial, while all that is solid and valuable sinks beneath its waters. The history of St. Patrick is an instance of the truth of this observation; his real character was for ages unknown; his name was associated, in the popular belief, only with puerile fables and ridiculous miracles, and no one thought of doubting that the doctrines which he taught were those of the modern Church of Rome.

 The contemporary and personal friend of Geoffrey Chaucer, the English poet John Gower produced works in the tradition of courtly love and moral allegory.  ‘Confessio Amantis’, Gower’s greatest English poem, is a collection of exemplary tales of love, whereby Venus’ priest, Genius, instructs the poet, Amans, in the art of both courtly and Christian love. The stories derive from classical and medieval sources and are told with a tender, restrained narrative style. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature's finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Gower’s complete English works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
