From the heroic romance of "The Knight's Tale" to the low farce embodied in the stories of the Miller, the Reeve, and the Merchant, Chaucer treated such universal subjects as love, sex, and death in poetry that is simultaneously witty, insightful, and poignant. The Canterbury Tales is a grand tour of 14th-century English mores and morals--one that modern-day readers will enjoy. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The version of this classic I read was a translation into modern English by Nevill Coghill.
It was very interesting to read this book and I reccommend it for any others who like to read short little tales as are in this book.
Very pleased and a great site to order from for required special book readings for High School lit classes and summer reading.

A book I have been meaning to read for a long time. It is written in a lyrical style of the time, so it may not suit all tastes. Other than that well worth reading.Published 1 month ago by steve everest
Great edition. Chaucer-scholar approved (my prof., that is.) Held up well to underlining, highlighting, multiple daily use, general binding abuse and study-love. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Sandra
