Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A vigorous treatment of The Nun's Priest's Tale, The Pardoner's Tale, The Wife of Bath's Tale, and The Franklin's Tale. "This carefully researched and lively edition...is richly and beautifully produced....One could not ask for a more enticing introduction to Chaucer's world." — Publishers Weekly.

Synopsis:

In 1386, Chaucer recorded, or created, the stories spun by 30 pilgrims traveling from London to Canterbury. Cohen and Hyman have responded to Chaucer's masterpiece with lively prose and unforgettable pictures that evoke the colorful world of 14th-century England. Full color.
