Reviews

`For a student contemplating the purchase of one critical work on The Canterbury Tales, this is the one to buy. It combines persuasive, intelligent and jargon-free interpretation of Chaucer's poems with very useful running annotation of a wide range of contemporary criticism…A lively book which will surely remain the standard critical text for many years to come.' - Times Higher Education Supplement

`This urbane, witty and delightful book is likely to become a classic of Chaucer criticism, invaluable to students of The Canterbury Tales.' - Review of English Studies

`Unquestionably the best comprehensive study of Chaucer's poem in existence.' - A.C. Spearing, University of Virginia
