Description
In the merchant's risqué tale, the aged, lascivious knight January marries the attractive teenager May. Soon, though, January loses his sight, and—in an unforgettable scene—his young wife and her lover betray him in the branches of a pear tree. "Happily ever after" is still possible, but only if the gods intervene. With their ribald humor and frank assessments of human nature, the individual stories contained in Geoffrey Chaucer's masterpiece The Canterbury Tales have been entertaining and enlightening readers for more than six centuries. This attractive paperback reprints one of the most memorable narratives as a self-contained literary work. The book features Chaucer's original text with E.B. Richmond's modern English verse renditions presented en face.
