Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definately Entertaining! This edition of The Canterbury Tales is a great translation from the original middle english text. The stories in here will keep you entertained no matter your interests; from murder, to lechery and folktales, Chaucer's got it all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CANTERBURY DELIGHTS Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales" tells us more than mere pilgrims' tales. First, the Middle English of Chaucer's time makes us realise and appreciate the evolution of the English language. The irony, sarcasm, and wit of Pilgrim Chaucer as the Narrator delights the literary buds of our human intellect. Curious minds should take delight in learning about the social and moral fabric that are woven throughout each pilgrim's character and the tales that is spun by that pilgrim; that is the society of Chaucer's time. This is not a book that teaches you how to, say, fix a leaky faucet; this book is the reason why you should leave that leaky faucet, to be transported into another realm, which precedes and shares our time.

About the Book

Two-part adaptation of Geoffrey Chaucer's tales by Tony award winner adaptor Mike Poulton. All the famous characters are here as well as many less well-known but equally full of life. Each of the stories has its own style-heroic verse for the Knight's Tale, vernacular rhymes for the Miller's Tale etc.-echoing the many narrative voices employed by Chaucer himself.
