RIP Geoffrey Chaucer and Flashback Friday is back!

Geoffrey Chaucer died on October 25th 1400….he’s known as the father of English Literature and the Canterbury Tales was one of the first pieces of literature that kick-started a passion in the written word for The Idiom.

Reading the Canterbury Tales in high school and especially the Miller’s Tale with the big ending scene of Absolon asking for a kiss from Alisoun and she, sticking her arse out the window, made me realize that we’re all a little bit messed up and enjoy a good dirty story no matter what century we are in….

Here’s a picture of Chaucer with his copy of Tollbooth published by Piscataway House Publications obviously a major influence on many of his works and must have been proud of such characters as Sarah, Kid with Clownhead, and Jimmy Saare….
