McColly, William. "The Book of Cupid as an Imitation of Chaucer: A Stylo-Statistical View." 18 (1984): 239-49.
Though statistical analysis reveals that the Book of Cupid contains similar words and word patterns (word repetition), Chaucer's characteristic inventive imagery is missing from the work. Therefore, the Book of Cupid must be considered an imitation, not part of Chaucer's canon.
