The John Gower Society (JGS) is dedicated to the study of the 14th century poet John Gower. The Society promotes and encourages this study in several ways.

John Gower Newsletter

The society publishes the John Gower Newsletter (JGN) twice annually, in April and October. JGN includes reviews of books and articles related to Gower studies, announcements about upcoming meetings, conference sessions and papers, and recent publications.

Gower Scholarship

JGS also organizes and supports scholarly activities, including sessions at academic conferences. It provides forums for Gower scholars to share ideas, collaborate on projects, and disseminate their research to other scholars and to the general global community.

Gower Pedagogy

JGS seeks to promote the study of Gower's works at all educational levels by posting pedagogical resources, materials, and ideas for teachers at all levels.


"I throw my darts and shoot my arrows at the world. But where there is a righteous man, no arrow strikes. But I wound those who live wickedly. Therefore let him who recognizes himself there look to himself."
