This is a brilliant edition of Chaucer's The Miller's Tale. The annotations are very detailed and scholarly enough to understand Chaucer in a social context, rather than simply in a literary one. Apart from the notes, you will also find an Approaches section, where aspects of the Tale such as theme and characters are covered. This is by far the best edition of The Miller's Tale, and tells you everything concisely * 5 star Amazon review *
Containing questions to aid in grasping the plot, and in-depth notes to translate and explain the archaic language and its setting, this edition of The Miller's Tale cannot be ignored as the best in the field. Making study easier, without spoon-feeding the central points, I highly recommend this book. * 5 star Amazon review *
