Why Read Chaucer

[Ed. I did. Also OE and Beowulf.]
Adam scriveyn, if ever it thee befalle
Boece or Troylus for to wryten newe,
Under thy long lokkes thou most have the scalle,
But after my makyng thow wryte more trewe,
So oft adaye I mot thy werk renewe,
It to correcte and eke to rubbe and scrape,
And al is thorugh they negligence and rape.
