Default chaucer as the social chronicler of his country and not reformer

chaucer PROLOGUE TO HE CANTERBURRY TALES is a mirror reflecting the social life of his age from top to the bottom. Keats said "chaucer work is the most precious document for whoever wishes to evoke a picture of life as it then was, precisely because he had no regard for the conventional hierarchy of men and events because he went to the most common placeamong them and purposely selected these as being more comprehensively representative."

Geoferry Chaucer is renowed as the father of English poetry. He is creater of Canterbury Tales which is an album of characteristics of all the cumunities of his era. He was a courteer and was a gay person. He was meticulous observer of other humans he was a great critic and satiric but he was not a reformer

Chaucer portrait the true pictures of the different characters of his society.
He also highligt the element of male dominancy of that society and as well as the suppresion of the rights of the people as well.
He will win, who knows how to handle both the superior and inferior forces
