Chaucer 1340-1400: The Life & Times of the First English Poet
Richard West (au). Geoffrey Chaucer is probably the first & some would say greatest poet of the English language & stands at the gateway of the early modern age. He lived & worked at a time when French & Latin were giving way to English, not just as the vernacular, but now used in the law, & in literature. As a child Chaucer survived the Black Death, later he fought in France during the Hundred Years War, served as a diplomat in Italy during the turmoil leading up to the papal schism, & became a Member of Parliament at the angry beginnings of the Protestant Reformation, the bloody Peasantsí Revolt, & the overthrow & murder of Richard II. The book begins & ends in Canterbury, the scene of Becketís martyrdom & a focal point of English history for more than 2,000 years. Illustrations.
