Chaucer in Denmark free pdf This study is an investigation of a subject never explored before: the translations and the reception in Denmark of the most important English poet from the Middle Ages Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?-1400) from the first appearance in 1782 of a transformation of one of his Canterbury Tales, The Wife of Baths Tale, to the present day. Ebbe Klitgard analyses the story of Chaucer in Denmark also as an exemplary study of the history of English education, culture, language and literature in Denmark. Klitgard demonstrates that the cultural transmission of Chaucer is historically bound by the changing cultural ties between the English speaking world and Denmark. In this way the story of Chaucer in Denmark becomes an illustrative and very complicated story of cultural change.
