Geoffrey Chaucer

Poetry is a form of art wherein the human language is aesthetically used in addition to its semantic and imaginary content. It is also referred by many as an exp​ression of true feeling in the form of fine poems that can transform the intellectual imagination into an artistic work of art and sound like music in one's ears.

Geoffrey Chaucer is one of the famous classic poets who contributed a lot to literature though his works. The most popular of all his works is the Canterbury Tales which marked the artistic maturity during his time.

This work of Chaucer was considered as the cultural hallmark of the English literature. His tales had earned 29 originals of the English society during the late medieval period that presented them with humor and insights.

The early works of Chaucer was greatly influenced by the poetry of love which is a French tradition, which includes the Romaunt of the Rose in 1370, and the tale of St. Cecilia in 1373, which was eventually used as the Canterbury Tale’s Second Nun’s Tale. At present, Chaucer is recognized as the Father of English Literature. This is because Chaucer wrote his works using the English language while the court poetry was in Latin or Anglo-Norman. Chaucer was also renowned and given the credit at the pioneer of iambic pentameter.
