In 1386, Geoffrey Chaucer continued his worst yr, yet all started his top poem. the daddy of English literature didn't take pleasure in in his lifetime the literary superstar that he
has today—far from it. The middle-aged Chaucer was once residing in London, operating as a midlevel bureaucrat and someday poet, until eventually a private and professional
crisis set him down the line resulting in The Canterbury Tales.

In the politically and economically fraught London of the past due fourteenth century, Chaucer used to be swept up opposed to his will in a chain of disastrous occasions that will eventually depart him jobless, homeless, separated from his spouse, exiled from his urban, and remoted within the nation-state of Kent—with not more viewers to listen to the
poetry he worked over.

In Chaucer’s story, Strohm, one of many best medievalists of our time, brings this turbulent second in Chaucer’s England to lifestyles, convalescing in vibrant element the pro and inventive pilgrimage that led Chaucer to compose so memorable a fictional one.”

Strohm’s scholarship is scrupulous; his conclusions attention-grabbing. it is a portrait not only of Chaucer yet of the complicated and swiftly altering international within which he lived, labored, and wrote—a story that intrigues at each turn.”
—Charlie Lovett, writer of The Bookman’s story and primary Impressions
