Canterbury Tales in Modern English by Geoffrey Chaucer and Illustrated by Rockwell Kent 1934

Free Shipping!


The procession that crosses Chaucer's pages is as full of life and as richly textured as a medieval tapestry. The knight, the miller, the friar, the squire, the prioress, the Wife of Bath, and others who make up the cast of characters -- including Chaucer himself -- are real people, with human emotions and weaknesses.

Chaucer wrote in English at a time when Latin was the standard literary language across Western Europe, the magnitude of his achievement is even more remarkable. However, Chaucer's genius needs no historical introduction; it bursts forth from every page of The Canterbury Tales.
