This volume contains Chaucer Biography by the amazing English thinker G.K.Chesterton, one of the smartest people of the 20th century. Some of the most important characters in art and literature of the 19th century are portrayed by the incredible mind and pen of Chesterton. If I were writing this in French, as I should be if Chaucer had not chosen to write in English, I might be able to head this preliminary note with something like Avis au lecteur; which, with a French fine shade, would suggest without exaggeration the note of warning. As it is, I feel tempted to write, 'Beware!' or some such melodramatic phrase, in large letters across the frontispiece. For I do really desire to warn the reader, or the critic, of some possible mistakes in or about this book: touching its real purpose and its inevitable pitfalls.
