Abstract or Summary
  • In this thesis I explore the ways in which twenty-first century Americans have access to Geoffrey Chaucer and his works. I look at issues surrounding Chaucer within the canon debate, high school history and literature textbooks, and Chaucer in popular culture, such as in movies like A Knight's Tale. I also take an in depth look at The Pardoner's Tale and The Wife of Bath's Tale, since they most frequently appear in textbooks and anthologies. Ultimately, I argue that access is limited for the average person interested in Chaucer and other historical writers, but that it would not be difficult to improve access for all readers.
