CHAUCER, G.: Canterbury Tales, Vol. 1 (Modern English Verse Translation) (Abridged)

Chaucer’s greatest work, written towards the end of the fourteenth century, paints a brilliant picture of medieval life, society, and values. The stories range from the romantic, courtly idealism of ‘The Knight’s Tale’ to the joyous bawdy of the Miller’s; all are told with a freshness and vigour in this modern verse translation that make them a delight to hear.
