Abstract or Introduction

It is a collection of important lecture notes covering important aspects of the history of English literature.

The initial exploration of English poetry's historical development necessitates excluding works written prior to the 14th century. The rationale for this exclusion is rooted in the archaic nature of the language found in those early works, which renders them virtually incomprehensible without specific linguistic expertise or scholarly background. In fact, even within the 14th century, the formal commencement of English poetry's history is primarily attributed to Geoffrey Chaucer, whose poetic creations belong to the latter half of the century. Two distinct factors contribute to this pivotal moment. First and foremost, linguistically, Chaucer's works represent the standardized prototype of what we now recognize as modern English. Secondly, from a historical perspective, Chaucer's contributions played a pivotal role in elevating English poetry to a position of prominence in England.
