Unfinished at the time of Chaucer’s death, this inimitable collection of fables, romances, and sermons has ingrained itself in the English imagination. As a motley crowd of pilgrims—from nun to knight, miller to monk, clerk to cook—journey from London to Canterbury to visit the shrine of St. Thomas Becket, they pass the time by telling each other stories. Narrated with a vast variety of tones and featuring themes ranging from the Knight’s traditional tale of courtly romance to the bawdy wit of the Wife of Bath, the tales form a varied patchwork of English life with echoes of classical and medieval literature. This thoroughly edited and extensively annotated edition contains a selection of the most popular tales.
