Geoffrey Chaucer The Father Of English Poetry by literaturemini(m): 1:44pm On Jul 25, 2023
Geoffrey Chaucer is one of the greatest poets of England. He is known to be the father of English poetry. This does not mean that there were no poetry poets in England before him. But before Chaucer, there was no National language. There were merely several regional languages. Chaucer used one of these languages, East Midland. By the force of his genius, he raised it to the level of the national language of England. He was, therefore, both the father of English poetry and the father of the English language. He is the first national poet of England. There were order poets also in his time. They were John Gower and William Langland. But their poetry is a little read and enjoyed today. On the contrary, Chaucer continues to be as fresh and enjoyable as when he lived and wrote.[url][/url]https://www.literaturemini.com/2018/07/geoffrey-chaucer-father-of-english-poetry.html
