Review

"The Canterbury Tales was written . . . during what the Middle Ages would have considered Chaucer's old age . . . It is a quite astonishing production . . .

Review


"David Wright's new verse translation of the poems from the Canterbury Tales is lively, readable...it should lead many delighted readers to Chaucer."--Manuscripta
"Indeed the best translation I have seen and will replace the version I had been using. The binding appears able to withstand constant use, and the price is fine for student budgets. This text, with Kane's biography and the Chaucer Glossary will make a fine course!"--The College of Staten Island, City University of New York
"With Wright's translation in print, there is no excuse for withholding Chaucer from any class offering an introduction to literature."--Anthony Ugolnik, Franklin & Marshall College
"I have found this translation to be the most thorough and easily read. I will recommend it to all my students as a companion to our main text."--Paul R. Lehman, University of Central Oklahoma
"I reviewed all the versions of Canterbury Tales in print and yours was by far the most lucid translation--real resonanc
