Lively, absorbing, often outrageously funny, Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales is a work of genius, an undisputed classic that has held a special appeal for each generation of readers. The Tales gathers 29 of literature's most enduring (and endearing) characters in a vivid group portrait that captures the full spectrum of medieval society, from the exalted Knight to the humble Plowman. This unabridged work is based on the new translation. Download and start listening now!

    " This is one of my absolute favorites. I love reading it in the original english too. It is a must read book. "

    " Read parts of this for a college English class many years ago. Funny stories that you wouldn't expect from something this old. Even a few risque parts for the times. "

    " I suppose this is my own Ulysses. Canterbury Tales is certainly one of those books, like Ulysses or Proust or Golden Bowl, that no one's actually read or if they have they hated it or if they didn't they're lying because they think it'll impress you. But I took a whole class on this in college and I had this terrific professor, and she showed me how awesome this is. Really, it's a heap of fun. Are you impressed? "

    " This is one of the few books I really, thoroughly enjoyed in college for required reading. It's definitely a challenge, but worth getting through all the Middle English. It makes reading Shakespeare almost easy, though. So, be prepared- it is not for the faint of heart. "
