Chaucer

Ackroyd, Peter
9780099287483
Geoffrey Chaucer has some claim to being the greatest poet in the English language.

He was a royal servant, who was indicted for rape.

Ackroyd, Peter

In this quick-witted portrait, Ackroyd reveals something more: a lugubriously jolly man fond of practical jokes, who smashes a once-used tea cup every morning to remind himself of the frailty of life. Iconic film stars make cameo appearances, just as Hitch did in his own films.
