    If you want to understand the daily life and psychology of the Late Middle Ages, Neville Coghill's famous translation of The Canterbury Tales provides one of the very best means of doing so. Within its pages are to be found a broad range of society – high and low, male and female, rich and poor – who express their innermost beliefs and extravagant fantasies in a series of stories they tell as they make their way to Canterbury cathedral.

    Story

    The tales are read in the poetic manner of their writing, but in modern day English.

    The reader, or preparer of his text, included over sixty minutes of critique and historical data on Geoffrey Chaucer and his varied writings. I slipped back fifty years to relive the horrors of English Literature 101. A brief historical intro would have sufficed quite nicely, thank you.
