good edition in textbook format 10 Oct 1999
By Thomas Hempel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It's obviously meant as a college text book, but where else can you find all of Chaucer's stuff with a reasonable amount of commentary ? Beware that this is in the original English, not a modernization.

More Than Just THE CANTERBURY TALES. 11 Nov 2007
By tvtv3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you have any interest in Chaucer or The Canterbury Tales, then THE COMPLETE POETRY AND PROSE OF GEOFFREY CHAUCER is a volume that you must own. As the title says, this is the complete poetry and prose of Chaucer, written in the original Middle English. The Canterbury Tales and Chaucer's longer poems are relatively easier to find, but some of his other writings are more difficult to obtain, such as some of his shorter poems. This is one of the only collections that I know that includes all those works and in the original Middle English. The book is quality bound and the text includes some very useful introductions, footnotes, and commentaries. A great gift for any person who loves the work of Chaucer.

Gotta Love That Chaucer!!! 9 Mar 2007
By M. Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is really nice. It looks good. The print is nice - not too big or too small. And it's really well bound. If you're looking for an all purpose book of Chaucer, this is the one. The volume also includes great foot notes, glosses, and historical commentary. It is heirloom quality. It is expensive, but if you like quality literature AND quality binding, you've found your match.

Great price! 16 Feb 2013
By Eclair Ribbons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Most other listings of this book, which I needed for my university's Chaucer class, were over or around 50 dollars. This one was below 10, which fit my puny budget. I think the book was described as secondhand, but other than being yellow with age and having some notes in the margins, it is perfect.
I like this edition because its introductions to each story do a lot to introduce context, and are legitimately interesting to read through. I think the footnotes on word translation could be better, but you won't hear me complaining--I found an online Middle English dictionary that suits my purposes just fine.

Came as described 16 Sep 2012
By Erin Speakman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Book came as described. There was a lot more writing in the margins than I had expected but the book is still readable and therefore I liked it for the price.
