The Canterbury Tales: A Selection (14th Century)
This edition includes a selection of fourteen of the most widely read of the
Canterbury Tales in the original Middle English, along with the General
Prologue and Chaucer’s Retraction, in which he apologizes for the parts of
the poem that might lead readers “into synne”. Drawing from the same text as
the full Broadview edition of the Tales, this edition also features a critical introduction, marginal glosses in
modern English of difficult words, and explanatory footnotes.
