    • Abstract:
      This essay aims to offer a biographical sketch of Thomas Dekker's creative process, investigating the ways in which Dekker refashions Chaucer, whose Workes, I argue, is a common theatrical sourcebook that offers the playwright quick access to stories and plots. To establish the link between Dekker and Chaucer, I examine the immediate Chaucer legacy in Renaissance England, surveying Dekker's reading of Chaucer from his early career to his late years. Locating Chaucer in the theatrical life of Dekker, I argue that it is John Stow's Chaucer legacy outside the academy that significantly shaped the playwright's theatrical re-imaginings. This is the first attempt to discuss, in full, Dekker's Chaucer-inspired texts alongside their principal source. [ABSTRACT FROM PUBLISHER]
