The Canterbury tales by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )

8 editions published between 1946 and 1974 in English and English, Middle and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Canterbury Tales brings together an unforgettable group of pilgrims on their way to Canterbury, pilgrims who came from all ranks of society, from the crusading Knight and burly Miller to the worldly Monk and the famously lusty Wife of Bath. Their tales are as various as the tellers, including romance, bawdy comedy, beast fable, learned debate, parable, and Eastern adventure. The resulting collection gives us a set of characters so vivid that they have often been taken as portraits from real life, and a series of stories as hilarious in their comedy as they are affecting in their tragedy. Even after 600 years, their account of the human condition is fresh and true."-- Amazon.com

"Arthur Szyk was one of the most creative and determined political activists of his time. A gifted book illustrator and illuminator, a skillful caricaturist, and a crusader for causes, this multifaceted artist ceaselessly defended the rights of Jews and advocated on their behalf." "The Art and Politics of Arthur Szyk, based on the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's exhibition of the same name, places the artist and his work into the context of the turbulent times in which he lived (1894-1951). This illustrated text examines how Arthur Szyk used his talent to support the Jewish people, attack their enemies, and awaken the world to the threat of Nazism."--Jacket
