Geoffrey Chaucer: his life, work and times

editor | | Friday, October 30th, 2009

 Geoffrey Chaucer was what we would today call multi-skilled — an English author, poet, philosopher, bureaucrat, courtier and diplomat, best known as the author of The Canterbury Tales. This course provides a brief account of Chaucer’s own life, examines the turbulent society in which he lived and takes a look at two of his most vividly drawn characters from the Tales — The Wife of Bath and The Pardoner.
