Overview
In the tradition of Seamus Heaney s Beowulf and Marie Borroff s Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Sheila Fisher s The Selected Canterbury Tales is a vivid, lively, and readable translation of the most famous work of England s premier medieval poet. Preserving Chaucer s rhyme and meter, Fisher makes these tales accessible to a contemporary ear while inviting readers to the Middle English original on facing pages. Her informative introduction highlights Chaucer s artistic originality in his memorable portrayals of surprisingly modern women and men from across the spectrum of medieval society."
