The introduction sets out the main questions the book will address. It gives a working definition of both ‘gloss’ and ‘diverting glossing’, provides an overview of the diverse traditions out of which self-glossing emerges and, with reference to Chaucer, Gower, and Hoccleve, discusses the practical and theoretical difficulties of identifying self-glossing in manuscript. It concludes by summarizing the argument of the book.

Keywords:   glossing, self-glossing, diverting glossing, The Canterbury Tales, Confessio Amantis, Regiment of Princes
