Through the use of allusions, references, and imagery, the work suggests that the narrator of Beowulf ardently believes in Christianity.   Lively, absorbing, often outrageously funny, Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales is a work of genius, an undisputed classic that has held a special appeal for each generation of readers.
