This concise and vigorous survey introduces scholars with out earlier wisdom to Chaucer, and especially to the 'Canterbury Tales'. Written in an invitingly inclusive but intellectually refined variety, it offers crucial evidence concerning the poet, together with a biography and comic strip of his significant works, in addition to supplying a framework for considering creatively approximately his writing.
All of us be capable of realize and create humour, yet how precisely can we do it? Salvatore Attardo and Victor Raskin have tried to provide an explanation for the workings of humour with their normal thought of Verbal Humor (1991).
