Description
This is the first and only edition of The Canterbury Tales that presents Chaucer's poem word for word in modern spelling. It retains the inimitable charm of Chaucer's language while eliminating the obstacle of archaic spelling. This text is eminently more readable and accessible, and will encourage students to read and appreciate Chaucer, not deter them.
