Chaucer did not invent English poetry, nor was he alone in translating and adapting continental literature into English. In this book Tony Davenport sets Chaucer's work in the context of other 14th-century English writing, and compares his handling of subjects, themes and literary forms not only with the familiar major poets - Gower, the Gawain-poet, Langland - but also with less-known writers and some of the many anonymous poems of the period.
