Product Details


Chaucer is the first of a new series of short biographies, which I am writing with the purpose of bringing to life some of the most important men and women in the history of the world. There is no better agent of human understanding and human knowledge than the course of a single life, with all the events and aspirations, ambitions and achievements, which may accompany it. To enter the consciousness and personality of a man or woman, of any period, is to see that period from within.” —Peter Ackroyd
