Geoffrey Chaucer


Geoffrey Chaucer (1342-1400)

“Love is a thing as any spirit free;
Women by nature long for liberty
And not to be constrained or made a thrall,
And so do men, if I may speak for all.”

  • From The Canterbury Tales (The Franklin’s Tale) by Geoffrey Chaucer, translated to modern English by Nevill Coghill (Penguin Classics, 2003).
