AUTHOR

Ronald L. Ecker, Geoffrey Chaucer, Eugene Joseph Crook

SUMMARY

This is the only complete modern-English translation of Chaucer's 14th-century classic in hard-copy print. And according to CHOICE, "It is difficult to imagine anyone doing a better job." As faithful to the original as a modern-English rendering permits, Ecker & Crook's translation includes the long-neglected prose tales (The Tale of Melibee & The Parson's Tale) in addition to the General Prologue & the 22 rhymed verse tales. Line numbers, corresponding to those found in Robinson, Benson, & other editions of the original text, are included for the student's ease in locating particular lines or passages. Adding to the volume's value both to students & the general reader is a glossary of people, places & terms. With Ecker & Crook's translation, students & general readers alike may now gain a more balanced view of Chaucer's genius by having in modern English his complete masterpiece--what the poet John Dryden described as "God's plenty"--in all its variety.Ronald L. Ecker is the author of 'The Canterbury Tales' with ISBN 9780963651235 and ISBN 0963651234.
