"Praise for the Hardcover edition: de Weever's is the most comprehensive and 'user friendly' dictionary and concordance to proper names in the works of Chaucer available today. First of all, it covers all the works in the canon, not just the Canterbury Tales...Second, it gives clear and detailed definitions for each proper name, with explanations of the context for each occurrence...Third, its format makes it the easiest to use...The 390 pages of dictionary proper leave little to be desired." -- Speculum
"A very useful sourcebook." -- Reference and Research Book News
"Highly recommended for academic and research-level public libraries." -- Choice
"A valuable contribution to research literature on Chaucer and the Middle Ages...useful to high school and college libraries." -- American Reference Books Annual
"An indispensable reference work that belongs on the shelf of every library." -- Studies in Short Fiction
