Description

Assembling at the Tabard Inn in Southwark, twenty-nine pilgrims begin their journey to Canterbury Cathedral. To entertain themselves on their long road, their host suggests that they regale each other with stories, with the teller of the best tale set to earn a free supper. The pilgrims correspond to all sections of medieval society, from the crusading knight to the drunken cook, and their tales span a range of genres, including the comic ribaldry and deception of `The Miller's Tale' and the story of chivalry and courtly romance told by the Franklin. Unfinished at the time of his death, The Canterbury Tales are here presented in their original Middle-English.

This edition contains a wealth of material and over 3,000 notes which will help all students of Chaucer's masterpiece.

About this Author

Considered the father of English literature, Geoffrey Chaucer (c.1340-1400) led a fascinating life that included being imprisoned and ransomed in France and embarking on a host of diplomatic missions that took him across Europe and exposed him to new literary influences. Best known for Troilus and Criseyde and The Canterbury Tales, Geoffrey Chaucer was the first poet to be buried in Westminster Abbey.
