Lively, absorbing, often outrageously funny, Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales is a work of genius, an undisputed classic that has held a special appeal for each generation of readers. The Tales gathers twenty-nine of literature’s most enduring (and endearing) characters in a vivid group portrait that captures the full spectrum of medieval society, from the exalted Knight to the humble Plowman. This new edition includes a comprehensive introduction that summarizes some of the most important historical events and movements that defined the world of Chaucer and his pilgrims; two additional tales (Reeve’s and Shipman’s); introductions for each tale designed to prepare the reader for a better understanding and enjoyment of the tale; newly written and conveniently placed explanatory notes; and a new, more easily understood system for learning to pronounce Chaucerian Middle English.

Es ist eine Sammlung von vierundzwanzig Geschichten, die der englische Schriftsteller zwischen 1387 und 1400 geschrieben hat. Sie wurden hauptsächlich in Versen geschrieben, obwohl zwei in Prosa geschrieben sind, und werden als Teil eines Geschichtenerzählwettbewerbs einer Pilgergruppe während einer Reise präsentiert von London nach Canterbury, um den Schrein von Thomas Becket in der Kathedrale dieser Stadt zu besuchen. Der Preis ist ein Essen in Southwarks Tabard Tavern nach seiner Rückkehr. Es ist eines der wichtigsten Werke der englischen Literatur und vielleicht das beste Werk des Mittelalters in England.

With their astonishing diversity of tone and subject matter, The Canterbury Tales have become one of the touchstones of medieval literature. Translated here into modern English, these tales of a motley crew of pilgrims drawn from all walks of life--from knight to nun, miller to monk--reveal a picture of English life in the fourteenth century that is as robust as it is representative.
