    • Geoffrey Chaucer (1343-1400), often referred to as the father of English poetry. He was a philosopher, alchemist, astrologer, bureaucrat, diplomat, and author of many significant poems.

Chaucer's best known and most imitated works include, “The Canterbury Tales”; Troilus and Criseyde; The Book of the Duches; and the House of Fame. In the 16th and 17th centuries, Chaucer's work was printed more than any other English author, and he was the first author to have his works collected in comprehensive single volume editions in which a Chaucer canon began to cohere.
