Chaucer I: Chaucer's Canterbury Tales

Andrew Cole

In this course we carefully study Geoffrey Chaucer's poetry and prose collected in the Canterbury Tales. We attend to the literary and historical contexts of the poet's work; learn about the manuscripts that preserved and canonized his writing from the late fourteenth century on; and read a good deal of secondary criticism on both the poet and his times.
