Part of Penguin's beautiful hardback Clothbound Classics series, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith, these delectable and collectible editions are bound in high-quality colourful, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.

In The Canterbury Tales Chaucer created one of the great touchstones of English literature, a masterly collection of chivalric romances, moral allegories and low farce. A story-telling competition between a group of pilgrims from all walks of life is the occasion for a series of tales that range from the Knight's account of courtly love and the ebullient Wife of Bath's Arthurian legend, to the ribald anecdotes of the Miller and the Cook.

“Rude but good!”

This re-telling of the Canterbury Tales is a really good read. I'd suffered rather than enjoyed abridged versions of Chaucers tales during English Lit in school where the focus was all on the "old... More

“A superb edition which brings this magisterial book to life”

This edition simplifies the text so that it is easy to understand and follow but still feels fresh and straight out of the 14th century.

The Prologue, Miller’s, Summoner’s, Friar’s and Reeve’s Tales are wonderfully... More
