Author: Chaucer, g.
Publisher: Penguin putnam inc.
Drawing from the same text as the complete Broadview edition of the Tales, which is based on the famous Ellesmere Manuscript, this selected edition also features a critical introduction, marginal glosses in modern English of difficult words, and explanatory footnotes. The most widely taught appendix material from the complete edition is included, along with ten illustrations from the Ellesmere Manuscript. The second edition includes a new glossary, a timeline of Chaucer's life and times, and detailed headers showing the section and line numbers, making it easier to find a specific section of the poem. Several popular prologues and tales have also been added to the selection: The Cook'™s Prologue and Tale, The Friar'™s Prologue and Tale, The Merchant'™s Prologue and Tale, and The Parson'™s Prologue.
