Product description

Synopsis

The most admired of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales are presented here in the original language but with spelling and annotations for modern readers. Sources and background information are included for the General Prologue and for most of the tales, enabling students to understand them in the light of relevant mediaeval ideas and attitudes. Nine critical essays are featured, along with a chronology and selected bibliography.
