Potter's Wax Museum- Geoffrey Chaucer


Best known for his work, The Canterbury Tales, Geoffrey Chaucer is represented in Potter's Wax Museum with this rather portly wax figure. Chaucer gave legitimacy to the English language through his narrative poetry. Before Chaucer, French and Latin were the languages of choice in the church and Royal Court.

A close up of the figure, with its hand posed.
