I'm Charles Roe, a literary and textual critic who specialises in the late middle ages.

I am currently working on a book on the relationship between secular poetry and religious writing in the work of Chaucer and his contemporaries. Alongside this, I am undertaking ground-breaking research on the career and remarkable influence of the thirteenth-century Franciscan scholar John of Wales.
