ENGL 361 - Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales

The social, political, and cultural background to Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. Chaucer’s  Canterbury Tales capture the liveliness and precision of Middle English and the variety of late medieval English life. In them Chaucer explores issues of community, gender, identity,  and authority as the pilgrims tell tales, quarrel with one another, and assert themselves. Through their narratives, the pilgrims attempt to make sense of  the social, religious, and political challenges of a world at least as confusing as our own. (Pre-1800 course.)
