About the Author

<DIV>Geoffrey Chaucer was born in London, the son of a wine-merchant. He fought in France, then went there and to Italy on diplomatic missions. His Canterbury Tales, begun in 1387, is one of the foundations stones of our literature and our language. Mike Poulton has a string of successful translations and adaptations to his name, most notably Turgenev''s "Fortune''s Fool" (which won a Tony Award) and Schiller''s "Don Carlos", which played for several months in the West End earlier in the year.</DIV>
