Chaucer by Peter Ackroyd (2005)

A very short but meaty biography of Chaucer.  I like Ackroyd's writing style - this is the second Peter Ackroyd I've finished in as many weeks.  He's easy to read but writes in depth - very enjoyable.  The last time I read The Canterbury Tales was in college; Ackroyd's biography inspired me to read them again.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Short but meaty biography.  I like Ackroyd's writing style; it's easy to read, interesting, and far from dry.  This inspired me to read The Portable Chaucer.
