Professor Marion Turner features in a new podcast for BBC History on Chaucer.

The podcast explores the life of the 14th-century poet, arguing that we need to look beyond his status as the ‘father of English literature’ to discover his connections to European culture.

Professor Marion Turner is the author of a recent biography of Chaucer (Chaucer: A European Life, Princeton 2019) which has been shortlisted for the Wolfson History Prize 2020. Find out more.
