Average Review. Write a Review. Julian of Norwich meditates on "all things," 2 and the writer who introduces Sir Orfeo, a complex intertextual romance, refers to the work as a "ferli thing. This range of varied literature consistently and poignantly employs "thing" at crucial moments. Geoffrey Chaucer's work shares this critical use of "thing" with his milieu, employing the word to signify variously, from clear referents--including genitalia, tales, and philosophy--to the ambiguous yet structurally crucial "thing" of The Parliament of Fowls.
Although most instances of "thing" in Chaucer's corpus can be precisely defined or easily dismissed, a triad of instances occurs in PF that resists definition. By examining the placement of these instances each occurs at a threshold in the poem and their connotation, I will argue that these three instances have the same denotation, one that eludes any of the definitions that the Middle English Dictionary provides.
Although my definition must remain speculative, because in each instance Chaucer explicitly maintains ambiguity, I hope to show that the meaning of this triad--both the definition of "thing" in this context and its three repetitions forming the triad--reflects Chaucer's strategy for marking the interstices where new poems form. These interstices are appropriately marked by "thing": Chaucer, via a critical appropriation of Boethian intertext, uses the word's imprecise semantic content to signify two competing, yet mutually reinforcing, desires.
