Chaucer's Canterbury Tales: Selected: An Interlinear Translation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Canterbury Tales is among the earliest of the great narrative poems written in the English language. Its author, Geoffrey Chaucer (c.1340-1400), penned his masterpiece in a vernacular that was the standard dialect in the southeast of England during his lifetime--a language of rich vitality, but also very different from the English we speak today. This useful volume, updated with an enlightening new introduction by Andrew Galloway, presents readers with the vigor, liveliness, and humor of Chaucer's original Middle English poetry, interspersed line-by-line with Professor Vincent Hopper's modern, graceful, and easy-to-understand translation. The Canterbury Tales is a set of stories that a diverse group of travelers tell to one another at the end of each day. They had set off by foot on a religious pilgrimage from the Tabard Inn in London to the shrine of St. Thomas

Synopsis:

(back cover)

The Canterbury Tales is among the earliest of the great narrative poems written in the English language. Geoffrey Chaucer (c.1340-1400), penned his masterpiece in the English widely used in the London area during his lifetime--a language of rich vitality, but also very different from the English we speak today. This volume presents readers with the vigor, liveliness, and humor of Chaucer's original Middle English poetry, interspersed line-by-line with Professor Vincent F. Hopper's modern, graceful, and easy-to-understand translation. It has been expanded and updated in this new edition by medieval scholar Andrew Galloway to include several additional key tales, further notes, and a new introduction. The result is an attractive, approachable, critically praised text for students of English literature. It's also a richly entertaining volume for the general reader.
