"With their astonishing diversity of tone and subject-matter, 'The Canterbury Tales' have become one of the touchstones of medieval literature. The tales are told by a motley crowd of pilgrims as they journey for five days from Southwark to Canterbury. Drawn from all levels of society and all walks of life (from knight to nun, miller to monk), the pilgrims reveal a picture of English life in the fourteenth century which is as robust as it is representative."--Back cover
