The Canterbury Tales Summary

The Canterbury Tales (Collins Classics) by Geoffrey Chaucer

HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics.

'Full wise is he that can himselven knowe.'

Written at the end of the fourteenth century, the poet Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales are a collection of stories told in Middle-English. Thirty pilgrims leave Southwark to travel to a shrine in Canterbury and become the narrators, telling each other stories of chivalrous romance, fable, parable, debate and comedy as they journey. Their accounts of the human condition remain as resonant today as when they were first written.
