Book Description:
This reading of 'The Canterbury Tales' is in contempoarary English prose to appeal to the student and general reader alike. It tells the story of a pilgrimage to Canterbury in which men and women drawn from all classes of society lighten their journey by telling tales. /Content /EditorialReview EditorialReview Source Amazon.com Review /Source Content On a spring day in April sometime in the waning years of the 14th century 29 travelers set out for Canterbury on a pilgrimage to the shrine of Saint Thomas Beckett. Among them is a knight, a monk, a prioress, a plowman, a miller, a merchant, a clerk, and an oft widowed wife from Bath. Travel is arduous and wearing; to maintain their spirits, this band of pilgrims entertains each other with a series of tall tales that span the spectrum of literary genres. Five hundred years later, people are still reading Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. If you haven't yet made the acquaintance of the Franklin, the Pardoner, or the Squire because you never learned Middle English, take heart: this edition of the Tales has been translated into modern idiom.

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.
