Wikipedia says of Chaucer (and the Canterbury Tales):

He uses the tales and the descriptions of its characters to paint an ironic and critical portrait of English society at the time, and particularly of the Church.

This public domain book would make beautiful copywork pages.  An older child could read through the text in a few days.  For younger children, reading out-loud to them would require longer.
