Introduction to Geoffrey Chaucer
eof
astGG
frey Chaucer is a poet who has made such allegorical and structural use of
ronomical elements in his works, that no other poet has managed to surpass
him. From his works, it is evident that Chaucer was extremely well versed in
astronomy albeit the astronomy incorporated in his works are concealed in a
way that it is difficult to extract his full knowledge of astronomy. Astronomy was not
the key topic in Chaucer's works although his works are the key to our discovery of his
knowledge on astronomy. He is well read and often viewed as a philosophical poet.
