Publicidade

Geoffrey Chaucer foi um escritor, filósofo, cortesão e diplomata inglês. Embora tenha escrito muitas obras, é mais lembrado pela sua obra narrativa inacabada, Os Contos da Cantuária , uma das mais importantes da literatura inglesa medieval.

Às vezes chamado de pai de literatura inglesa, é atribuído a Chaucer por alguns estudiosos o fato de ter sido o primeiro autor a demonstrar a legitimidade artística do inglês nativo, em vez do francês ou do latim.
