The Canterbury Tales is a classic collection of stories written in Middle English by Geoffrey Chaucer. The characters in the tales were used to satirize English society at the time. There is still question as to whether or not the book was finished a the time of Chaucer's death yet it is still one of the most famous books in all of literature. Geoffrey Chaucer is widely considered to be the greatest English poet of the Middle Ages and he has also known as the Father of English literature. Chaucer's books, particularly The Canterbury Tales, were integral in the development of the Middle English vernacular. Chaucer became the first poet to be buried in the Poets' Corner of Westminster Abbey after his death in 1400.
