Chaucer is one of the best writers in English literature, he is known as father of English poetry, he is also known for his art of characterization. His characters are very lively and lucid, they are as real as they are. However, they have taken from the copy of nature. Chaucer’s art of characterizations is very differ from others writers, he delineates the character with various angels, sometime he starts with the conduct of the character, sometime he takes first the character’s detail his dress, often he goes to his table manners, usually he jumps into his horse details, in this way he breaks the monotony in his work.
Chaucer usually portrays his characters by inner self , he paints the world of heart and mind rather the surface world. Here is huge evidence , we get from his work having been passed six centuries but the nature of human beings are same, this thing reveals his realism. Chaucer’s Art of Characterization is not believe very much on abstract world rather his characters and their means are concrete that can be seen by human’s eyes as like the miller face looks like as furnace, the Frankin’s beard is ‘WHITE AS DAISY’
