A fresh study of Chaucer which embraces modern critical theory to provide a stimulating re-evaluation of the full range of his work

A fresh study of Chaucer which embraces modern critical theory to provide a stimulating re-evaluation of the full range of his work. Feminist criticism and the work of Bakhtin receive particular attention and new readings that reconsider the political and social context of his writings are also discussed. Full allowance is paid to his Chaucer's pre-Tales works, alongside the Canterbury Tales themselves.

Geoffrey Chaucer is today one of the most highly regarded English poets, but during his lifetime his writing was largely subsidiary to his role in public affairs in 14th-century England. He undertook diplomatic missions to the European continent for several kings, and he served as a clerk for the maintenance of royal buildings. Perhaps the chief characteristics of Chaucer’s works are their variety in subject matter, genre, tone, and style and in the complexities presented concerning the human pursuit of a sensible existence.

Geoffrey Chaucer (/ˈtʃɔːsər/; c. 1340s – 25 October 1400) was an English poet and author. Widely seen as the greatest English poet of the Middle Ages, he is best known for The Canterbury Tales. Chaucer has been styled the "Father of English literature". He was the first writer buried in Poets' Corner of Westminster Abbey. Chaucer also gained fame as a philosopher and astronomer, composing the scientific A Treatise on the Astrolabe for his 10-year-old son Lewis.
