    As a forerunner of the English Novel Chaucer has been called the father of English poetry. But he is also the grandfather of the English Novel. In his Troilus and Criseyda and The Canterbury Tales, we have the seeds of the novel which was cultivated by others later. The Prologue to the Canterbury Tales is a prologue to modern fiction. This book, which presents the whole splendid history of English literature from Anglo-Saxon times to the close of the Victorian Era, has three specific aims. The first is to create or to encourage in every student the desire to read the best books, and to know literature itself rather than what has.
