Scouring Books: The Canterbury Tales

The Canterbury Tales
by Geoffrey Chaucer

Originally published in 1478

Perhaps the greatest pleasure I derived from studying literature in both high school and college was reading this classic collection of stories that tracked life in the Middle Ages, and I still don't believe for a minute that I know it half as well as I could. Chaucer is known as a father of English literature, and is certainly one of my great inspirations. This particular edition I'm listing here was originally published in 1964, and in this version was put out by Bantam. I've got others.

Bookshelf status: semi-read
