I just read about Chaucer who wrote The Canterbury Tales. The story is about pilgrims who go on a journey to Canterbury. In the story Chaucer himself meets twenty-nine other pilgrims. To make the journey more interesting, Harry Bailey, sets a challengesuggesting that each pilgrim tells two stories on the way to Canterbury two stories on the way back. The person who tells the best story will be treated to a feast hosted by the other pilgrims. Chaucer makes a brief but vivid overview of what the characters are like and their physical description. He tells about the characters rank and types, but alsopresents them as real people. In the story the characters break their stereotypes. The date of Chaucer's birth is unknown. Chaucer was a middle class citizen, he married Philippa Pan in 1366. Before marrying Philippa, Chaucer served in the English Army. In 1359 Chaucer was captured and held prisoner in France. Chaucer completed The Bookof The Duchess in 1369, which he wrote for a grieving husband John of Gaunt. Chaucer

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
