About the book:

A selection of the best-loved and most frequently studied of The Canterbury Tales

This collection is the perfect introduction to one of the cornerstones of English literature. The General Prologue provides picturesque character sketches of the colorful band of pilgrims who gather at a London inn on their way to Canterbury. The nine tales chosen range from the noble Knights story of rivalry in love to the boastful and hypocritical Pardoners moral treatise, and from the exuberant Wife of Baths Arthurian legend to the Millers worldly, ribald farce. Incorporating every type of medieval narrativebawdy anecdote, allegorical fable, and courtly romancethe tales selected here encompass the blend of universal human themes and individual personal detail that have enthralled readers for more than six hundred years.


@AprilFools Oh and the Wyfe of Bathe. Talk about a woman who likes to be perced to the roote.
