The Riverside Chaucer : Reissued with a New Foreword by Christopher Cannon Paperback
The third edition of the definitive collection of Chaucer's Complete Works, reissued with a new foreword by Christopher Cannon.
Since F. N. Robinson's second edition of the The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer was published in 1957, there has been a dramatic increase in Chaucer scholarship.
This has not only enriched our understanding of Chaucer's art, but has also enabled scholars, working for the first time with all the source-material, to recreate Chaucer's authentic texts.
For the third edition, an international team of experts completely re-edited all the works, added glosses to appear on the page with the text, and greatly expanded the introductory material, explanatory notes, textual notes, bibliography, and glossary.
In short, the Riverside Chaucer is the fruit of many years' study - the most authentic and exciting edition available of Chaucer's Complete Works.

Review by baswood
A superbe edition of chaucer's works in middle english. There is no modern translation but enough notes and textual commentaries to guide you through. It's all here: The Canterbury Tales of course but also the wonderful Troilus and Criseyde. Other lesser known works are here as well, but they are all deserving of your time. I Ioved the adrenelin rush of The House of fame and the witty Parliament of Fowles. The Book of the Duchess is quite beautiful also. There are also Chaucer's transaltions of the Romance of the rose and Boethius.If you want to read more than the Canterbury tales then invest in this tome.
