The procession that crosses Chaucer's pages is as full of life and as richly textured as a medieval tapestry. The knight, the miller, the friar, the squire, the prioress, the Wife of Bath, and others who make up the cast of characters -- including Chaucer himself -- are real people, with human emotions and weaknesses.
Chaucer wrote in English at a time when Latin was the standard literary language across Western Europe, the magnitude of his achievement is even more remarkable. However, Chaucer's genius needs no historical introduction; it bursts forth from every page of The Canterbury Tales.
