This week I spoke with Dr. Marion Turner, a professor of English Literature at Oxford and a Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford. Her latest book, Chaucer: A European Life is a major biography of the great medieval poet. Her book was chosen as Book of the Year in 2019 in The Times, The Sunday Times, and the TLS. In 2020 it was shortlisted for the Wolfson History prize and for which she was awarded the Rose Mary Crawshay Prize.
