Chaucer

Ah, tis Friday, the day that cometh at the end of the week and doth mark the weekend.

And, after something of a European tour of literary greats, I return to these shores for one of our own. And if Shakespeare is very much the scourge of the GCSE English student, then Chaucer must surely be the equivalent for the English A-level student.

Not that I have an English A-level, nor have I read any Chaucer. I think there’s a copy of The Canterbury Tales on my bookshelf but I can’t say it’s ever been opened.

I have been to Canterbury though, which must count for something.
