The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer

Intelligent, lively, ribald and profound, Chaucer is as fresh and readable as ever. In this collection of twenty-four tales from the fourteenth century, Chaucer displays an astonishing range of styles and an enhancing collection of characters, from the earthy Miller, with his bawdy story of marital infidelities , to the dainty and discerning Prioress. This variety and exuberance make The Canterbury Tales the most engaging work of its kind, and David Wright’s translation from the original Middle English preserves all of Chaucer’s wit and Nuance.
