MEDIA REVIEWS
..."unquestionably the best comprehensive study of Chaucer's poems in existence. It possesses Pearsall's usual merits of penetration, good sense, readability and wit. It is immensely informative and clear about the many complicated textual problems raised by the Tales, and shows a full knowledge and understanding of the whole range of interpretive work on the poem, but what it ultimately has to say is very much Pearsall's own."
-A.C. Spearing, University of Virginia
"This urbane, witty and delightful book is likely to become a classic of Chaucer criticism, invaluable to students of "The Canterbury Tales. . .It is the product not only of an outstanding scholar-critic humanist, but of a great teacher."
-"Review of English Studies
." . .for a student contemplating the purchase of one critical work on "The Canterbury Tales, this is the one to buy. It combines persuasive, intelligent and jargon-free interpretation of Chaucer's poems with a veryuseful running annotation of a wide range of contemporary criticism. . .a lively book which will surely remain the standard critical text for years to come."
-"Times Higher Education Supplement
