Geoffrey Chaucer enjoyed an eventful life, serving with the Duke of Clarence and with Edward III.

Industry Reviews

"Like a bird of biographical prey, Ackroyd identifies his subject in an iconic image of Chaucer addressing the court of Richard II and swoops to investigate" -- Iain Finlayson * The Times * "Extensively researched and elegantly written" -- Sally Cousins * Sunday Telegraph * "Full, lively and eminently readable" -- Laurence Phelan * Independent on Sunday * "Ackroyd's series of short lives bodes well: handy, attractive, well illustrated, useful" -- Anne Wroe * Sunday Times * "This elegantly written and nicely judged biography offers a welcome reintroduction to a much-underestimated figure, and gets Ackroyd's new series of Brief Lives off to a promising start" * Scotsman *
