    Abstract:
    Using the postmodern theory of Jean Baudrillard I will argue that Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, especially the relationship between Chaucer the poet and Chaucer the pilgrim, follows Baudrillard’s order of simulacra as put forward in his book Simulacra and Simulation. Applying Baudrillard’s theory of the simulacra to Chaucer’s poem, I will analyze the correlation between the order of the simulacra and The Canterbury Tales.
