The Wife of Bath's Prologue on CD-ROM is the initial release in The Canterbury Tales Project from Cambridge. The CD-ROM presents transcriptions, collations and digitized images of all fifty-eight pre-1500 manuscript and print versions of Geoffrey Chaucer's famous poem. It provides on a single disk the material that Chaucer scholars have until now had to travel around the world to view in different libraries. The software allows sophisticated searches of all the manuscripts of The Wife of Bath's Prologue simultaneously, giving scholars rapid access to a large archive of information of a kind never before realized.
