5.0 von 5 Sternen The Reverend Doctor 29. Januar 2013
Von Myron E. Cross II - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
I am very happy with this collection, mostly written in modern English. As an under-grad English, and Communication Major at The University of Arizona I read "The Canterbury Tales" in Middle English, which is included in this collection. The criticism and biographies are excellent. I still have my library from all of my under-grad and post-grad classes, but I find it much easier to carry it with me in my Kindle. I only wish that this technology and prices were then as they are today.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A writer whose works have held up pretty well 10. April 2013
Von oggi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
I started reading Chaucer in my 5th-grade year, but not in school, been reading and reading him through 7 decades, now. I taught 5th grade for some years in a rural school, taught them Chaucer out of a trot, and they loved him, had no trouble with his English--all this to the consternation of their high school English-teachers who were certain my kiddoes had mined all that could be got out of him and told me so, every year. Can you imagine that! Back then I could'nt teach it in the classroom, but I recommended they read "The Miller's Tale" at home. I told them it was the earliest dirty joke knew of which I knew. All came well versed in it next day. If you know Chaucer you'll like this presentation. If you don't know Chaucer you'll love 1t! Hasten!I

5.0 von 5 Sternen Litterary Giant!! 20. Dezember 2013
Von Jack. Mcdonald - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
Chaucer is one of the lost geniuses of English literature. Too many people today don't realize the debt that we owe to this Late Middle Age poet. His story lines and ribald humor run the gamut of the human condition. His most famous work, The Canterbury Tales, can be read piecemeal, and display a deep understanding of timing, irony and style. His work is foundational to the writers that have followed him.
3.0 von 5 Sternen A bit messy 13. Juli 2013
Von Adriana - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
First, I really like Chaucer, I bought this edition for University, for all the content I say it is a fair price, even excellent. BUT I think it is very messy! Some lines seem to be missing, or maybe it is just that it is VERY messy in some pages.
