    Some of his work I really love, this one just isn't a favourite, , though his poetry has made me begin to research more about him, brilliant man, very descriptive always

    Chaucer really was a bellwheter for his time!

    His work devles deep into characters and sculpts them beautifully for his readers.

Gentilesse

The firste stok, fader of gentilesse --
What man that desireth gentil for to be
Must folowe his trace, and alle his wittes dresse
Vertu to love and vyces for to flee.
For unto vertu longeth dignitee
And noght the revers, saufly dar I deme,
Al were he mytre, croune, or diademe.

This firste stok was ful of rightwisnesse,

[Hata Bildir]
