Canterbury Tales (tr. Coghill) by Geoffrey Chaucer



ISBN: 9780140424386 Category: Tags: ,


‘Nevill Coghill’s easy seductive translation ensures that this the most popular work in English Literature – now 600 years old – will run through yet more centuries’ Melvyn Bragg In The Canterbury Tales Chaucer created one of the great touchstones of English literature. A storytelling competition within a group of pilgrims from all walks of life is the occasion for a series of tales that range from the Knight’s account of courtly love and the ebullient Wife of Bath’s Arthurian legend to the ribald anecdotes of the Miller and the Cook. This masterly and vivid modern English verse translation retains all the vigour and poetry of Chaucer’s fourteenth-century Middle English. Translated by NEVILL COGHILL
