"This edition is just what is needed at the present time. The new formats and glosses are helpful and interesting, with fresh insights and up to date scholarship. Professor Allen has performed an important service to Chaucerians and students alike."
"The notes are clear and draw much from social history, which is something that interests students. Does not seem to overwhelm students with too much esoterica."
