9780007449446: Canterbury Tales (Collins Classics)

In Chaucer's most ambitious poem, 'The Canterbury Tales' a group of pilgrims assemble in an inn just outside London and agree to entertain each other on the way to Canterbury by telling stories. The pilgrims come from all ranks of society, from the crusading Knight and burly Miller to the worldly Monk and lusty Wife of Bath.

About the Author:

Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1343-1400) is often considered the the father of English literature and the greatest English poet of the Middle Ages. He wrote The Book of the Duchess, The House of Fame, The Legend of Good Women, and Troilus and Criseyde, but his most famous work remains The Canterbury Tales. He was the first poet to have been buried in Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey.
