An odd group of strangers sets off on a pilgrimage to Canterbury, telling stories along the way... Geoffrey Chaucers outrageous, romantic, and hilarious fourteenth century tales are retold here for children of today in a beautifully illustrated, hardback book, along with information about Geoffrey Chaucer himself and the history of the tales.
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.
The procession that crosses Chaucers pages is as full of life and as richly textured as a medieval tapestry. The Knight, the Miller, the Friar, the Squire, the Prioress, the Wife of Bath, and others who make up the cast of characters - including Chaucer himself ~ are real people, with human emotions and weaknesses. When it is remembered that Chaucer wrote in English at a time when Latin was the standard literary language across western Europe, the magnitude of his achievement is even more remarkable. But Chaucers genius needs no historical introduction; it bursts forth from every page of The Canterbury Tales.

During his life, Geoffrey Chaucer (born c.1340) was courtier, diplomat, revenue collector, administrator, negotiator, overseer of building projects, landowner and knight of the shire. He was servant, retainer, husband, friend and father, but is now mainly known as a poet and the father of English literature, a position to which he was raised by other writers in the generation after his death. It was Boccaccios Decameron which inspired Chaucer, in the 1390s, to begin work on The Canterbury Tales, which was still unfinished at his death in October 1400. It tells the story of a group of 30 pilgrims who meet at the Tabard Inn in Southwark, on the south bank of the Thames opposite the city of London, and travel together to visit the then famous shrine of St Thomas Becket in Canterbury cathedral. The tavern host, who accompanies them, suggests that they amuse one another along the way by telling stories, with the best storyteller awarded a meal in the tavern (paid for by all the others) on their return. The stories told by the pilgrims range from bawdy comedies through saints lives and moral tracts to courtly romances, always delivered with a generous helping of Chaucers own sly wit and ironic humor. Although basing his characters on the stereotypes of estates satire, Chaucer succeeds in his aim of producing an overview of his times and their culture, for posterity, in the manner of Italian, proto-Renaissance, writers. This transcription and edition is taken from British Library MS Harley 7334, produced within ten years of Chaucers death. The on-page notes and glosses aim to enable readers with little or no previous experience of medieva.
In Chaucers classic, much-loved collection of tales a host of medieval characters come alive on the page - and they are as lively and colourful now as they were seven hundred years ago! In this retelling of five of the stories in modern English, Chaucers pilgrims entertain us with tales of knights and ruffians, desperate lovers, resourceful women, talking animals… and more.
