Some brief overview of this book

Beyond its importance as a literary work of unvarnished genius, Geoffrey Chaucers unfinished epic poem is also one of the most beloved works in the English language-and for good reason: It is lively, absorbing, perceptive, and outrageously funny. But despite the brilliance of Chaucers work, the continual evolution of our language has rendered his words unfamiliar to many of us. Esteemed poet, translator, and scholar Burton Raffels magnificent new unabridged translation brings Chaucers poetry back to life, ensuring that none of the originals wit, wisdom, or humanity is lost to the modern reader. This Modern Library edition also features an Introduction that discusses Chaucers work as well as his life and times.

An illustrated retelling of Geoffrey Chaucers famous work in which a group of pilgrims in fourteenth-century England tell each other stories as they travel on a pilgrimage to the cathedral at Canterbury.
