Marion Turner winner of the 2020 Rose Mary Crawshay Prize

Professor Marion Turner has been awarded the Rose Mary Crawshay Prize for her book Chaucer: A European Life (Princeton University Press, 2019).

The award was established in April 1888 by Mrs Rose Mary Crawshay as ‘The Byron, Shelley, Keats In Memoriam Yearly Prize Fund’. In 1914, some years after her death, the Charity Commissioners transferred the administration of the prize fund to the Academy. The Prize was first awarded in 1916.
