This modern English edition of Chaucer's classic begins on a spring day in April. Sometime in the waning years of the 14th century, 29 travelers set out for Canterbury on a pilgrimage to the shrine of Saint Thomas Beckett. Among them are a knight, a monk, a prioress, a plowman, a miller, a merchant, a clerk, and an oft-widowed wife from Bath. Travel is arduous and wearing; to maintain their spirits, this band of pilgrims entertain each other with a series of tall tales that span the spectrum of literary genres.

    " One can learn a lot of 14th C England by reading this book. One can learn more, by reading it and a general history of late Medieval England. "

    " I'd forgotten how much these tales make me laugh! (and Chaucer writes some rather "shocking" material for the 15th century) My senior AP kids will read this and then race through British lit this fall. "
