Overview
One of the great masterworks of English literature, in a gorgeous new clothbound edition
InThe Canterbury TalesChaucer created one of the great touchstones of English literature, a masterly collection of chivalric romances, moral allegories, and low farce. A storytelling competition between a group of pilgrims from all walks of life is the occasion for a series of tales that range from the Knight s account of courtly love and the ebullient Wife of Bath s Arthurian legend, to the ribald anecdotes of the Miller and the Cook. Nevill Coghill s masterly and vivid modern English verse translation is rendered with consummate skill to retain all the vigor and poetry of Chaucer s fourteenth-century Middle English."
