Chaucer's Tale: 1386 and the Road to Canterbury

A full of life microbiography of Chaucer that tells the tale of the tumultuous yr that ended in the production of The Canterbury Tales

In 1386, Geoffrey Chaucer persevered his worst yr, yet all started his most sensible poem. the daddy of English literature didn't take pleasure in in his lifetime the literary megastar that he
has today—far from it. The middle-aged Chaucer was once dwelling in London, operating as a midlevel bureaucrat and someday poet, until eventually a private and professional
crisis set him down the line resulting in The Canterbury Tales.

In the politically and economically fraught London of the past due fourteenth century, Chaucer was once swept up opposed to his will in a sequence of disastrous occasions that may finally go away him jobless, homeless, separated from his spouse, exiled from his urban, and remoted within the nation-state of Kent—with not more viewers to listen to the
poetry he worked over.

At the loneliest time of his existence, Chaucer made the progressive choice to maintain writing, and to write down for a countrywide viewers, for posterity, and for fame.

Brought expertly to existence by means of Paul Strohm, this can be the eye-opening tale of the beginning essentially the most celebrated literary creations of the English language.

“Paul Strohm illuminates how 1386 marked a decisive 12 months for Geoffrey Chaucer, one during which he went from finished coterie poet to the preferred writer of the paintings of genius for which he's celebrated to today: The Canterbury stories. In Chaucer’s story, Strohm, one of many most interesting medievalists of our time, brings this turbulent second in Chaucer’s England to lifestyles, recuperating in brilliant aspect the pro and artistic pilgrimage that led Chaucer to compose so memorable a fictional one. ”
—James Shapiro, writer of 1599: A 12 months within the lifetime of William Shakespeare

“Strohm makes use of his research of Chaucer’s annus horribilis of 1386 as a jumping-off aspect for exploring no much less a question than who Chaucer was—as a functionary, a resident of London, a member of the King’s circle and of Parliament, and a author operating within the fourteenth century. Strohm’s scholarship is scrupulous; his conclusions attention-grabbing. this can be a portrait not only of Chaucer yet of the advanced and quickly altering international within which he lived, labored, and wrote—a story that intrigues at each flip. ”
—Charlie Lovett, writer of The Bookman’s story and primary Impressions

If this is indeed one of Archbishop Kilwardby's chests, it must have been built before 1276 and altered to have three locks. The chest may have originally been several inches taller than it now is. The unusual open work on the feet of the chest indicates that there may have been more to the design of the leg than survives. An example of a similar complete leg is shown in the construction drawings at the end of the chapter.
