Abstract

This innovative translation of Chaucer's classic work is presented in plain text that purposefully avoids the compromises needed to maintain its original rhyming structure. Indeed, given the Great Vowel Shift beginning in the fifteenth century, this departure is expressly pays tribute to the master himself by not reinventing his Tales to suit modern ears.
