The Complete Poetry and Prose of Geoffrey Chaucer is intended to make Chaucer's texts accessible with a minimum of scholarly interference. The critical, biographical, and linguistic essays are grouped at the end so as not to impede the approach to the text. By doing so, the student is able to enjoy the richness and humor of The Canterbury Tales as well as the beauty of Troylus and Criseyde. This collection will create a deeper appreciation for Chaucer and his genius.
