“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Geoffrey Chaucer (English Poet)
Date of Death:
October 25, 1400
Geoffrey Chaucer was an English author, poet, philosopher, bureaucrat, courtier and diplomat. Although he wrote many works, he is best remembered for his unfinished frame narrative The Canterbury Tales. Sometimes called the father of English literature, Chaucer is credited by some scholars as being the first author to demonstrate the artistic legitimacy of the vernacular English language, rather than French or Latin.
