I'm calling this done, even though I have 3 tales to go. I figure if the book itself is incomplete, then my reading of it can be as well.

I'm not rating this because I'm all over with this. I definitely should have read this with a class. The act of reading the Old (Middle?) English alone was fun, but without a group or instructor, who knows if I did it right? According to me, I'm a natural at it, & a pro.

Reading each take with historical context around it probably would have been helpful, as well.

The Canterbury Tales is a collection of stories told by pilgrims in Medieval England who are going to pray at Canterbury Cathedral. Chaucer uses characters from all aspects of the society - knights, merchants, tradesmen, religious - allowing the human nature to be revealed where the 7 Deadly Sins (pride, envy, wrath, sloth, greed, gluttony, lust) are counterbalanced by virtues (humility, contentment, patience, fortitude, mercy, moderation, chastity).

The tales at times were a bit boring while others were funny and a bit lewd. There were love stories, morality tales, fables, and satires. The characters each seem to have a quality that added something to their story.

Sometime I may try to find a translation in Modern English and see if I enjoy the stories more. ( )

I initially was introduced to the Canterbury tales in AP English class in HS. The way my teacher brought the text to life was great and when I saw this I had to buy it. Having the Old English (which I believe is really Middle English) next to present day English is very helpful. I found it curious to see how our language has developed over time as the meanings of certain words have definitely changed over time. During my next semester in college I'm taking a class that specifically deals with Middle Age literature. I look forward to reading this yet again and am sincerely hoping for an easy A in the course. If you've never read the Canterbury Tales, I highly recommend it. This is a classic in English Lit, everyone should read it. ( )

Having struggled through this for a high school English class, with the original 14th century English text, this edition, with its juxtaposition of original and modern English (facing pages), makes Chaucer's tales much more accessible - and enjoyable - for the modern reader. I could only wish for a slightly larger font size to eliminate the need to wear reading glasses. ;) ( )

Chaucer's excellence is one side, a serviceable but clunky translation on the other.

Whan that aprill with his shoures soote
/ The droghte of march hath perced to the roote,
/ And bathed every veyne in swich licour
/ Of which vertu engendred is the flour;
/ Whan zephirus eek with his sweete breeth
/ Inspired hath in every holt and heeth
/ Tendre croppes, and the yonge sonne
/ Hath in the ram his halve cours yronne,
/ And smale foweles maken melodye,
/ That slepen al the nyght with open ye
/ (so priketh hem nature in hir corages);
/ Thanne longen folk to goon on pilgrimages,
/ And palmeres for to seken straunge strondes,
/ To ferne halwes, kowthe in sondry londes;
/ And specially from every shires ende
/ Of engelond to caunterbury they wende,
/ The hooly blisful martir for to seke,
/ That hem hath holpen whan that they were seeke
