"In pages rich with explication of scholastic, literary and historical
material, [Alistair] Minnis recovers a medieval notion of authorial fallibility," wrote Seth Lerer in his The Times Literary Supplement review of Fallible Authors: Chaucer’s Pardoner and Wife of Bath. "In its attentions to debates on Lollardy, its learned engagement with
theological detail, its sensitivity to nuances in scholastic
definition, Fallible Authors tells the student and the teacher that
we’d better get our Latin into shape, learn more about Archbishop
Arundel, and brush up on our Bonaventure."
