The Complete Canterbury Tales (Slip-Case Edition), by Geoffrey Chaucer, translated by Frank Ernest Hill, illustrated by Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris
When Chaucer set out to write The Canterbury Tales, his original plan included more than fifty stories! Though he was never able to complete the tales, what has survived has succeeded in cementing a place as one of the earliest masterpieces of English Literature. This version has been translated from Middle English into a more modern, easily readable language, making it the perfect introduction into some beautiful stories!
"The old standby here gets its first facelift in more than 50 years...a more modern, more accessible form. Large English literature collections should consider." Library Journal
