An old post from John Gower’s blog…

I was looking for the “John Gower is a wanker” t-shirts from the Chaucer Blog, and came across this old post from the Gower blog.  Funny stuff.  The one I laughed at most was this one:

ITEM. Thou hast removede mencioun of me from the secounde drafte of thyn confessio amantis. WTF!?! & hereof I appeale thee John Gowere that thou art a wanker. 

Of course, not being a Chaucer or Gower scholar I have no idea whether that’s what Gower actually did…Anyone?
