Geoffrey Chaucer

From 1370-1373, Chaucer went on many diplomatic tasks outside of London, expanding his English appreciation and work in the process.

This man wrote the Canterbury Tales, which is thought to be one of the best poetic pieces in English.

Geoffrey Chaucer was an English poet and author. One of his well known poems is called "Parliament of Fouls." One historian interpreted the piece as Christian Love. Chaucer also created the pieces "Troilus and Criseyde" and "The Legend of Good Women."

Geoffrey Chaucer was King Edward III's esquire, thanks to his wife Philippa Roet, who was the daughter of Sir Payne Roet.

Geoffrey Chaucer was born on Thames Street in London in 1340.

He later died of unknown reasons after 60 years of life on October 25, 1400 in London and was the first to be buried in the now called Poet's Corner.

This is a video interpretation of Geoffrey Chaucer's "The Pardoner's Tale."
