This review is from: The Riverside Chaucer: Reissued with a new foreword by Christopher Cannon (Paperback)
Just as the man himself wrote it and miles better than any modern translation. Apropos the characters in the Tales, these are the folk who sit around you on a long train journey - only the job titles have changed. Chaucer is a warm, witty and wise writer, effortlessly entertaining, and this marvellous edition does full justice to his genius.
