John Gower

JOHN GOWER:


§ Gower uses human elements in his work Confessio Amantis (A Lover’s Confession).

§ This work uses the concept with a degree of irony.

§ John uses stories to say “The seven deadly sins of Love” (Amans).

§ This work is an inspiration from the Latin poet Ovid’s mock religious dream version.

§ The conclusion of this work is “A farewell to love rather than a vow of chastity in ironic outcome”.
