Obviously, Chaucer’s career was prospering, and his first important poem— Book of the Duchess—seems further evidence of his connection with persons in high places. That poem of more than 1, lines, probably written in late or earlyis an elegy for Blanche, duchess of Lancaster, John of Gaunt’s first wife, who died of plague.
