Chaucer: The Basics is an accessible introduction to the works of Geoffrey Chaucer. It provides a clear critical analysis of the texts, while also providing some necessary background to key medieval ideas and the historical period in which he lived. Jacqueline Tasioulas gives a brief account of Chaucer's life in its historical and cultural context and also introduces the reader to some of the key religious and philosophical ideas of the period.

The essentials of the language and pronunciation are introduced through close reading in a section dedicated to demystifying this often alien-seeming aspect of studying Chaucer. Including a whole chapter devoted to poetry the book also discusses key works, such as:The Book of the DuchessThe House of FameThe Parliament of FowlsTroilus and CriseydeThe Legend of Good WomenThe Canterbury TalesWith glosses and translations of texts, a glossary of key terms and a timeline, this book is essential reading for anyone studying Chaucer and Medieval Literature.
