GEOFFREY CHAUCER was born in London, the son of a wine-merchant, in about 1340, and as he spent his life in royal and government service his career happens to be unusually well documented. By 1357 Chaucer was a page to the wife of Prince Lionel, second son of Edward III, and it was while in the prince’s service that Chaucer was ransomed when captured during the English campaign in France in 1359–60.
Thus The Canterbury Tales begins. There’s like 25 travelers or something like that, which makes for a lot of unique stories.
As it was the 1300s not everyone’s life was documented, but as Chaucer was a public servant, many records testify to his existence and his accomplishments. Written between 1387 and 1400, Geoffrey Chaucer’s masterpiece is a collection of stories told by different people. Thus The Canterbury Tales begins. I’m not gonna go into detail, because I want you all to discover the tales for yourselves.
