Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read the Original Read the original language Chaucer - it's not that hard if you read it out loud and use the notes. Chaucer is an infinitely better than any of his translators. And the tales are fabulous, funny, and filled with some of the greatest characters in the language.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable now that I'm older #plumreview Having this book foisted on me at nineteen did it no favours. But now that I'm willing to put in a little work (the footnotes help with the olde English), there's so much to be gotten from these tales.
