Geoffrey Chaucer 1340-1400 poet

His poetry reflects the influence of the countries to which he was sent on various missions. The period of French influence lasted from 1359-72; that of Italian, in which he was influenced by Boccaccio whom he met, from 1372-86; and finally his mature style which lasted from 1386 to his death in 1400. It was during this period that he wrote The Canterbury Tales, the first book published by printing press in England.
