The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer, published in 1475, is quite possibly the most famous text written in Middle English and has been studied and analysed countless times over the several hundred years that have passed since original publication. Skeat’s essay, originally published in 1907, aims to explore the organisation of the tales within the whole manuscript. This title will be of interest to students of English Literature
