Product Description
This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on the Middle Ages – Key Authors - Dante & Chaucer. The total number of slides is 37. Each power point presentation is highly editable, so you can change them or reorder the slides to fit your individual needs.

Power point presentation #1 is entitled, The Middle Ages - Key Figures - Geoffrey Chaucer and contains 17 slides.

Poet Geoffrey Chaucer was born circa 1340 in London, England. In 1357 he became a public servant to Countess Elizabeth of Ulster and continued in that capacity with the British court throughout his lifetime. The Canterbury Tales became his best known and most acclaimed work. He died October 25, 1400 of in London, England, and was the first to be buried in Westminster Abbey’s Poet’s Corner.

The Canterbury Tales is by far Chaucer’s best known and most acclaimed work. Initially Chaucer had planned for each of his characters to tell 4 stories a piece. The first 2 stories would be set as the character was on his/her way to Canterbury, and the second 2 were to take place as the character was heading home.

Apparently, Chaucer’s goal of writing 120 stories was an overly ambitious one. The Canterbury Tales is made up of only 24 tales and rather abruptly ends before its characters even make it to Canterbury.

Power point presentation #2 is entitled Religion - The Easter Story - Caiaphas - Jewish High Priest and contains 20 slides.

Dante was an Italian poet and moral philosopher best known for the epic poem The Divine Comedy, which comprises sections representing the 3 tiers of the Christian afterlife: purgatory, heaven, and hell.

This poem, of medieval literature and considered the greatest work of literature composed in Italian, is a philosophical Christian vision of mankind’s eternal fate. Dante is seen as the father of modern Italian, and his works have flourished since before his 1321 death.

Dante’s Divine Comedy has flourished for more than 650 years and has been considered a major work since Giovanni Boccaccio wrote a biography of Dante in 1373. By 1400, at least 12 commentaries had already been written on the poem’s meaning and significance.
