JGN XXXII no. 1 April 2013

Society member Wim Lindeboom has pointed out that contrary to customary practice reviewers were not identified in JGN XXXII, no. 1, April 2013. The editors regret the unintentional omission.

Peter Nicholson reviewed R.F. Yeager, "Gower and Chaucer on Pain and Suffering: Jephte's Daughter in the Bible, the 'Physician's Tale,' and the Confessio Amantis," in Knowledge and Pain, ed. Esther Cohen and Leona Toker.


"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."
