CANTERBURY TALES

GEOFFREY CHAUCER    Book Number: 39775    Product format: Paperback

Geoffrey Chaucer (c.1340-1400) was one of the finest storytellers in the English language, as well as being a great poet and an accomplished prose writer. The Canterbury Tales tells the story of 90 pilgrims who meet by chance at the Tabard Inn in Southwark, London, and journey together to the shrine of St Thomas Becket in Canterbury cathedral. To pass the time along the way, they tell stories to one another. The Tales themselves range from the exemplary saints' lives told by the nuns, to the bawdy, comic tales of the miller and the reeve, always shot through with Chaucer's cunning wit and dry humour. Its 'on-page' notes enable readers with little or no previous experience of Medieval English to read and enjoy this landmark in English Literature. 706pp, paperback.
