I've been doing some work recently with Pericles: Prince of Tyre, focusing on the character of Gower. Naturally, this led me to the real John Gower and his principle work, Confessio Amantis. I have yet to read the work proper (but I have read a few excerpts). Have any Medievalists (or others) read this book? Does it, as a claim I read states, stack up to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales?
