Description

Geoffrey Chaucer was a courtier, a bureaucrat and a diplomat. He was also a most prolific poet, and was to become arguably the most important literary figure of his age. The fourteenth century was a time of transformation in English language and literature, and Chaucer was a key innovator of the time. In this unit students will consider a sampling of key texts from the period within the context of this shifting landscape.
