Details

Chaucer was not always the revered creator of The Canterbury Tales. As this detailed history explains, until 1386 he was a civil servant writing elegant verses for an aristocratic coterie in London. That year, a series of personal, political and financial crises drove him into exile in Kent, where he embarked on a new kind of poetry: a verse narrative that gave voice to ordinary people and ensured his recognition as one of England’s greatest poets.
