    In this edition, we hear, translated into modern English, 20-some tales, told in the voices of knight and merchant, wife and miller, squire and nun, and many more. Some are bawdy, some spiritual, some romantic, some mysterious, some chivalrous. Between the stories, the travelers converse, joke, and argue, revealing much about their individual outlooks upon life as well as what life was like in late 14th-century England.

    Tad Davis says: "Many voices, at times enthralling"
    "Best way to "read" Chaucer!"

    If you could sum up The Canterbury Tales in three words, what would they be?

    Moral, Eternal, Bawdy


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Realizing that the common theme was that you eventually get what you deserve.


    Any additional comments?

    Having these classic tales told by the excellent narrators gave them life and made them understandable and enjoyable. It really beat reading them in school!
