5.0 out of 5 stars The best complete Chaucer out there, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Canterbury Tales (Wordsworth Poetry Library) (Paperback)
This is an excellent edition and a complete must given the price. Here you get Chaucer in the original Middle English (the only way to enjoy him in my opinion) but with extensive parallel translations of obscure words along with explanatory footnotes. The book also contains informative introductions to each of the tales by Chaucer scholar Lesley Coote of Hull University along with extensive further reading lists and questions on the text to encourage deeper analysis of the text. Such scholarship used to be the preserve of the much more expensive Oxford and Penguin editions so it is no wonder that Wordsworth is causing such concern amongst those publishers. This book is ideal for a student or for anyone who wants to be enlightened into the fascinating world of Chaucer.
