Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1340 – 1400) was an English poet and author, bureaucrat, courtier, diplomat and member of parliament. He wrote many works of literature, but is best known for The Canterbury Tales. This talk concentrates on the so-called marriage tales. Most famously that of the Wife of Bath but also the Merchant’s Tale, The Nun’s Priest’s Tale and the Franklin’s Tale.
Networking, refreshments, drinks, cakes …
£3 entrance £2 (if want to) raffle at door.
This is by Zoom as James has to travel a long distance to give this talk. This also means that members can watch this at home if the weather is bad.
Look forward to seeing you here.
