      Chaucer never says overtly why he chose that language in the Canterbury Tales itself, though by the time he really got started on that project in the mid-to-late s, he had already written a dozen or so works in English rather than French or La. Geoffrey Chaucer was born between the years , the son of John and Agnes (de Copton) Chaucer. Chaucer was descended from two generations of wealthy vintners who had everything but a title and in Chaucer began pursuing a position at court.

This sourcebook gives readers fuller access to Middle English literary works by situating these works within their sometimes alien historical and cultural contexts/5(3). Modern ways of presenting Chaucer have often made his work seem 'normal' so that The Canterbury Tales and its much-studied General Prologue are seen as archetypes of narrative and prologue.

Tony Davenport argues that study of Chaucer's major work alongside contemporary English poems reveals the odd and extreme aspects of Chaucer's writing as well as the daring and4/5. The Influence of Chaucer on his French Contemporaries. Chaucer proved that English could be written with elegance and power and it is thanks to his works that its prestige grew as a medium for serious literature.

His poetry naturally inspired praise and imitation from his contemporaries. Of these admirers, the prolific John Lydgate is. The Canterbury Tales (Middle English: Tales of Caunterbury) is a collection of 24 stories that runs to o lines written in Middle English by Geoffrey Chaucer between and InChaucer became Controller of Customs and Justice of Peace and, inClerk of the King's work.

It was during these years that Chaucer began working on his most famous text, The Canterbury : Geoffrey Chaucer. Petrarch was as celebrated for his Latin works as for his Italian writings by his contemporaries. Chaucer’s Clerk’s Tale closely follows this work, Petrarch’s elegant Latin adaptation of the last tale in Boccaccio’s Decameron.

Little information exists about Chaucer's education, but his writings demonstrate a close familiarity with a number of important books of his contemporaries and of earlier times (such as Boethius' The Consolation of Philosophy). Chaucer likely was fluent in several languages, including French, Italian, and Latin.

Geoffrey Chaucer, the outstanding English poet before Shakespeare. His The Canterbury Tales ranks as one of the greatest poetic works in English.

He also contributed in the second half of the 14th century to the management of public affairs as courtier, diplomat, and civil servant. Abstract: Chaucer and His French Contemporaries synthesizes Winsatt's work on Chaucer's French connections over the past twenty-five years, particularly his studies and editions of Machaut.

But Chaucer's indebtedness to French poetry was no passing phase. For various reasons — a not very remote French origin of his own family may be one of them — he was in no way interested in older English literature or in the work of his English contemporaries, save possibly that of "the moral Gower.".

"[Turner has] read his work so intelligently, that even those who thought they knew it all already will find themselves looking at Chaucer with completely fresh eyes. She evokes the times, the politics, the personalities of his contemporaries and, above all, she gets inside this most ironical and brilliant of.

Since Kittredge, critics and literary historians have tended to take for granted Chaucer's discontinuity from his French contemporaries, to see Chaucer as subject and his contemporaries as objects. Most recent critics presume a radical breach between Chaucer and his French contemporaries, seeing in the Book of the Duchess an early stage in Chaucer's movement away from French.

Chaucer, for example, despite apparently always saying the best, seemed to have reserved his true opinions, leaving both contemporaries and readers alike to wonder what he really thought – be it about fellow-writers like Hoccleve and Lydgate, or Criseyde, or about his fictional Merchant.
