About the Author: Geoffrey Chaucer

Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1343 – October 25, 1400?) was an English author, poet, philosopher, bureaucrat, courtier and diplomat. Although he wrote many works, he is best remembered for his unfinished frame narrative The Canterbury Tales. Sometimes called the father of English literature, Chaucer is credited by some scholars as being the first author to demonstrate the artistic legitimacy of the vernacular English language, rather than French or Latin.

It is impossible to overstate the importance of English poet GEOFFREY CHAUCER (c. 1343c. 1400) to the development of literature in the English language. His writingswhich were popular during his own lifetime with the nobility as well as with the increasingly literate merchant classmarked the first celebration of the English vernacular as a tongue worthy of literary endeavor, most notably in his unfinished narrative poem The Canterbury Tales, the format and structure of which continues to be imitated by writers today. But the impact of Chaucers work was felt even into the 16th and 17th centuries, when the first major collections of his writings set a high standard for how authors should be presented to the reading public. This widely esteemed seven-volume setfirst published in the 1890s by British academic WALTER WILLIAM SKEAT (18351912), Erlington and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon at Cambridge Universityis based solely on Chaucers original manuscripts and the earliest available published works (with any significant variations or deviations between versions highlighted in the extensive notes), and comes complete with Skeats informative commentary on many passages. Volume I features a detailed life of Chaucer; a complete list of Chaucers works; The Romaunt of the Rose, a translation of a popular and controversial French poem of courtly love typically attributed to Chaucer; and minor poems including: The Book of the Duchesse The Compleynt of Mars The Parlement of Foules A Compleint to His Lady Merciles Beaut proverbs of Chaucer and others.
