New Course for Fall: Chaucer

Sex and violence, murder and mayhem, social satire and dirty jokes… the works of Geoffrey Chaucer take on many of the sensational themes we see on TV and in movies today. His characters—such as the Canterbury pilgrims, who attempt to outdo each other by telling stories of romance, murder, intrigue, and even flatulence—appear surprisingly familiar to contemporary audiences. Chaucer’s ability to capture human experience so perceptively and compellingly is just one reason he is considered the Father of English literature. In this course, we will explore some of Chaucer’s most memorable works to understand just how he got that title. No knowledge of Middle English expected. While this course will appeal to English majors, we welcome other majors to consider it. Just contact Dr. MacWilliams at for more information.
