Geoffrey Chaucer


Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1342-1400)

“It’s men that are untrue
And women, women ever blamed anew.
I think it a pretence that men profess
They hide behind a charge of faithlessness.”

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