The canterbury tales

Chaucer, G.

9780140424386 - The canterbury tales

Artikelomschrijving

Inspired by Boccaccios Decameron, and framed as a storytelling competition between a group of pilgrims, Geoffrey Chaucers The Canterbury Tales is one of the greatest works of English literature, translated from the Middle English with an introduction by Nevill Coghill in Penguin Classics. In The Canterbury Tales Chaucer created one of the great touchstones of English literature, a masterly collection of chivalric romances, moral allegories and low farce. A story-telling competition between a group of pilgrims from all walks of life is the occasion for a series of tales that range from the Knights account of courtly love and the ebullient Wife of Baths Arthurian legend, to the ribald anecdotes of the Miller and the Cook. Rich and diverse, The Canterbury Tales offers us an unrivalled glimpse into the life and mind of Medieval England. Nevill Coghills masterly and vivid English verse translation is rendered with consummate skill to retain all the vigour and poetry of Chaucers fourteenth-century Middle English. Geoffrey Chaucer (c.1343-1400) was an English author, poet, philosopher, courtier and diplomat, best known as the author of The Canterbury Tales.
