The Gower Project is a consortium of European and North American scholars investigating the effects of hypertext and cutting-edge theoretical perspectives on the reading of and research into John Gower’s poetry.

Our various web sites, each devoted to a separate aspect of our work, both demonstrate hypertextual responses to Gower's poems and offer online aids for teaching and research.

This site, maintained by Georgiana Donavin at Westminster College, is our Resources Page. It hosts the latest Project news, links to a variety of Gower sites, and offers an updated bibliography on the most recent scholarly work on Gower's poems.
