Geoffrey Chaucer is one of the most famous poets in the English language - but why? This course offers students and overview of Chaucer's poetry, spending particular time on his masterpiece, "The Canterbury Tales". Sometimes tragic, sometimes bawdy, and almost always humorous, Chaucer?s poetry offers a glimpse of a world long-lost, while simultaneously forcing us to ask hard questions about justice, love, and the nature of human creation.
