The Canterbury Tales, Paperback Book

Description

At the Tabard Inn in Southwark, a jovial group of pilgrims assembles, including an unscrupulous Pardoner, a noble-minded Knight, a ribald Miller, the lusty Wife of Bath, and Chaucer himself.

As they set out on their journey towards the shrine of Thomas a Becket in Canterbury, each character agrees to tell a tale.

The twenty-four tales that follow are by turns learned, fantastic, pious, melancholy and lewd, and together offer an unrivalled glimpse into the mind and spirit of medieval England.
