5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive students' edition of the complete Chaucer, 22 Jan 2012
This review is from: The Riverside Chaucer: Reissued with a new foreword by Christopher Cannon (Paperback)
This is the excellent update to the standard Oxford Chaucer by F.N.Robinson. It has been updated and revised to keep in step with modern Chaucerian scholarship, and has extensive notes, background and bibliography. There are now on-page glosses of middle English words, as well as the full glossary in the back.

It is worth knowing that the text is in small print and there is little on-page space for your own notes and annotations. But that's a small price to pay for the quality of the text and the immense amount of scholarship contained within this edition.

With relatively thin pages and a flexible spine, this feels workman-like and made to be read and studied - it's also relatively light and compact, so ideal for students and lecturers who might be required to carry it around. So altogether an admirable publication, and little surprise that it's usually the standard university edition for medievalists.
