The individual narratives that make up “ The Canterbury Tales” are presented within the framework of a pilgrimage to Canterbury. At the outset each pilgrim undertakes to tell two tales on the way to Canterbury & two on the way back. The tales vary from bawdy to solemn, depending on the narrator. All provide insights into the human condition that are as relevant today as when the stories were conceived. This sumptuous edition presents the stories in a modern English verse translation which retains the charm of the original while ensuring the text is accessible to a general aud. It includes plates from the celebrated Kelmscott Chaucer, which was produced in 1896 by pre-Raphaelite artists William Morris & Edward Burne-Jones & inspired by illuminated manuscripts
