This vintage book contains Geoffrey Chaucer's famous collection of stories, "The Canterbury Tales." The 24 tales are written over 17,000 lines and represent the efforts of a flock of pilgrims engaged in a story-telling contest. The pilgrims are travelling from London to Canterbury to visit the shrine of Saint Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral, and the winner of the contest will receive a free meal when they return. Widely considered to be Chaucer's magnum opus, "The Canterbury Tales" is highly recommended for all lovers of the English language and would make for a worthy addition to any bookshelf. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.
