Canterbury Tales

$24.05

List Price: 26.99

This carefully researched and lively edition of a part of Chaucer’s masterwork is richly and beautifully produced. While Cohen admits that “Chaucer’s words are best,” her prose adaptation of four of his tales captures the zest and vigor of Middle English and makes his stories accessible to the modern child. This is not a pedantic translation or a bowdlerized retelling; Cohen does not substitute weak cliches for Chaucer’s rollicking and earthy metaphors, nor does she sacrifice the rhythms of his text.
