9780460870276: The Canterbury Tales (Everyman's Library)

This new reprint of the existing Everyman CANTERBURY TALES retains the essential ingredients of A C Cawley's highly respected edition, but adds a new prefactory introduction by Professor Malcolm Andrews of The Queen's University Belfast; a new suggested reading list; and a new chronology of Chaucer's life and times. Whether read for study or purely pleasure, the CANTERBURY TALES remains as fresh and enjoyable today as when it was written.

Review:

On a spring day in April--sometime in the waning years of the 14th century--29 travelers set out for Canterbury on a pilgrimage to the shrine of Saint Thomas Beckett. Among them is a knight, a monk, a prioress, a plowman, a miller, a merchant, a clerk, and an oft-widowed wife from Bath. Travel is arduous and wearing; to maintain their spirits, this band of pilgrims entertains each other with a series of tall tales that span the spectrum of literary genres. Five hundred years later, people are still reading Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. If you haven't yet made the acquaintance of the Franklin, the Pardoner, or the Squire because you never learned Middle English, take heart: this edition of the Tales has been translated into modern idiom.

From the heroic romance of "The Knight's Tale" to the low farce embodied in the stories of the Miller, the Reeve, and the Merchant, Chaucer treated such universal subjects as love, sex, and death in poetry that is simultaneously witty, insightful, and poignant. The Canterbury Tales is a grand tour of 14th-century English mores and morals--one that modern-day readers will enjoy.

This textbook series provides concise and lucid introductions to major works of literature, from classical antiquity to the twentieth century.
