Summary
An overview of Chaucer's work, focusing on the most canonical texts, while also providing some analysis of his minor works. It begins with a review of his life and the cultural milieu of fourteenth-century England, a time marked by great dangers, social unrest, and complex court maneuverings. It then expands into analyses of such major works as The Parliament of Fowls, Troilus and Criseyde, and the Canterbury Tales, examining them alongside a selection of lesser-known verses addressing a variety of courtly, religious, and classical themes
