    • Abstract:
      Interpretation of the many instances of weeping by Chaucer's characters is a key aspect of understanding his works. This article explores the relevance of models provided by tears in devotional contexts for viewing tears not simply as a corporeal symptom of emotion but as a mode of discourse that is as potent as it is paradoxical: both outward and inward, involuntary and applied, and forming a distinctive voice between passive and active.
