Slow Walking and Chaucer's "The Clerk's Tale"

Winifred Sandy's reproduction of The Ellesmere Manuscript Clerk from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.

I hope you enjoy my article, "Slow Practice as Ethical Aesthetics: The Ecocritical Strategy of Patience in Geoffrey Chaucer's The Clerk's Tale." It has just appeared in this Special Issue: 2020 Ecocriticism: In Europe and Beyond; 10th Year Anniversary Issue. Ecozon@ 11.2 (2020): 118-127. In it, I consider how ecocritical approaches concerning slowness and walking can illuminate this poignant and disturbing tale.
