Description
In this poetically faithful and engaging translation of 14 selected episodes from The Canterbury Tales, Sheila Fisher presents a vivid and lively new version of Geoffrey Chaucer's lyric 14th-century masterwork, from the chivalrous Knight to the assertive Wife of Bath, from the high style of courtly romance to raunchy ramblings and the excesses of religious zeal. Fisher preserves Chaucer's rhyme and meter as well as articulating his poetic voice, making the tales accessible to a contemporary ear, while this "bilingual edition" allows direct comparison to the Middle English original on facing pages.

"Sheila Fisher's vibrant new verse translation captures in contemporary English the rhymes, the rhythms, the wit, the earnestness, and the game of the best-known Canterbury Tales."óWarren Ginsberg
