A really helpful edition at all levels: introductions to the whole text and to each story, notes on each story and a translation that prioritizes sense over rhyme. I was particularly pleased with the set of rules to help with pronunciation.

Little Devil - Magic realism/cross-over fantasy for readers aged 7 and up.

All of these so called collected works are too difficult to access because there are no indexes for particular books so you have to scroll through for ages to find what you want . Consequently, although I love the content of all these authors the access is appalling and so I feel all those that I ordered were a waste of money.

Very good. Very pleased to see that it also included " The House of Fame " and other poems. The introductory biog. of Chaucer was also very useful.

Extremely hard to read.

It is neither the original or a modern translation, but some kind of hybrid translation which can be quite confusing.
Odd bits of punctuation and annotations are strewn throughout the text making it difficult to read with fluidity.
Such a shame.
As for it being illustrated, I couldn't see a single illustration, and I'm using a new kindle paperwhite.
For less than £1, I might be complaining a bit too much....

I liked this book very much. I have always liked Chaucer's work and found this charming. I use it for research and I would recommend its use for newcomers to the works of Chaucer

The tales are readable but there is no linkable chapter list so there is no way of going to the start of a tale which makes it a bit rubbish !
