They scrutinize the manuscript's rich and varied contents; reopen theories and controversies regarding the book's making; trace the operations and interworkings of the scribes, compiler, and illuminators; tease out matters of patron and audience; interpret the contested s of linguisticand national identity; and assess Auchinleck's implied literary values beside those of Chaucer.
