    • Very useful, both the edition and the audio cd. It has several activities to do with pupils.Paper could be better, though.


    • This is one of those books that at sometime in your life you have to read. The reason:- There are so many references to parts of this book that one stumbles across in life, whether it be, Radio, TV, Papers, Magazines, Plays, Films and of course Qi, that it makes sense to understand the source.And actually once you start it's not that bad. I was surprised it was not in the free eBook catalogue from , as so many other classics are.


    • Prologos interesantes. Cuentos que aunque escritos en la Edad Media se pueden extrapolar a la actualidad y analizar como ha cambiado el modo de pensar con el tienpo. Toda persona que estudia inglés debería leerlo ( temática, pentameter, frame tales, quids, etc)


    • The OBG Classics edition published September 11, 2017, claims to be "the new translation." But IF it is somehow new -- and, by the way, no translator is identified -- what exactly has been translated? What is new about it? It is still written in the difficult-to-understand Middle English Chaucer used, and apart from spelling (or misspelling?) "his" as "hise" in line-1 [see NOTE at end] and throwing in some extra commas, this is pretty much the standard version. It is handsomely formatted and has [...]


    • Let's get this clear at the start: This is a review of Jill Mann's edition of the Canterbury Tales in its Kindle version. (It's a shame that can't distinguish between different editions of the classics when posting reviews! -- hint!) About the Tales themselves, I'll say only that they are both a classic and a blast, and if you can handle the Middle English, you have to read them in that language. Jill Mann's editorial work is smart and thorough, too. The print edition is a bargain at the price [...]


    • Here is a brief synopsis.At the Tabard Inn, a tavern in Southwark, near London, the narrator joins a company of twenty-nine pilgrims. The pilgrims, like the narrator, are traveling to the shrine of the martyr Saint Thomas Becket in Canterbury. The narrator gives a descriptive account of twenty-seven of these pilgrims, including a Knight, Squire, Yeoman, Prioress, Monk, Friar, Merchant, Clerk, Man of Law, Franklin, Haberdasher, Carpenter, Weaver, Dyer, Tapestry-Weaver, Cook, Shipman, Physician, W [...]


    • This review is for the actual product. I was able to download this for free. It is a fine product. There is a prologue and notes. As far as Canterbury Tales itself, it is an epic poem. I read it in small pieces along with study aids. I would not be truthful if I told you I really enjoy works like this. I have flashes of enjoyment and wish to be educated and "well read", whatever that means. Therefore I more endure works like this than enjoy them. However I am glad I read this and am ver [...]


    • If you are going to read The Canterbury Tales, this is the way to go. The Middle-English may seem intimidating at first, but it is easier than one might think to sound out and understand. Of course, the annotation helps quite a bit too. These tales and their frame perfectly capture medieval life with it's lively characters and various settings. Ranging from poetic diversions, to dramatic, to adventures, all the the way to gruesome fables, and plenty of very funny (and memorable) bawdy humor. Th [...]
