Reviews

"There is a tendency to assume that anything that happened in history is not funny. Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog performs the vital service of showing that the Middle Ages can be fun, and, as a side effect, reminding us that people were as capable of laughing in the fourteenth century as we are today . . . maybe more so." - Terry Jones, Director of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and author of Chaucer's Knight: The Portrait of a Medieval Mercenary

"While disappointed to discover that I am not the Chaucer blogger, I nonetheless commend this edifying tome." - David Wallace, Judith Rodin Professor, University of Pennsylvania
