Geoffrey Chaucer is only recognised by many people as the author of 'The Canterbury Tales', but that was only one of the books written by the man often called the Father of English Literature, the first poet to be buried in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey. He was not only an author and philosopher, but he also gained a reputation in astronomy, and had an active career in the civil service.

This won't be easy, unless you've read at least the General Prologue. I tried to keep the questions general, and the choices as obvious as I could. I just hope you go away a little better Jeopardy player. How do they know all that stuff? Quizzyland!
