Using extant manuscripts as his starting point, Edward Condren argues that the overall design of the ""Canterbury Tales"" has a structural parallel with Dante's ""Commedia"". He demonstrates how individual tales support this design and how the design itself confers rich meaning, in some instances investing with new complexity tales that otherwise have been little appreciated. Dividing its focus between the underlying unity of the poem as a whole and the discrete tales that create this unity, this book advances several interpretations: the progressive dislocation and displacement in Fragment One; a claim for the unity of the ""marriage group""; the survey of the poet's literary career in Fragment Seven; and the merging of Chaucer's professional and spiritual lives at the end of the poem.
