Category Description for Middle Ages - Canterbury Tales:

This classic by Geoffrey Chaucer begins by giving details about a group of people who are journeying to Canterbury. All these different kinds of people share stories, and these tales are captured here to show readers how different people lived and thought in medieval England. A knight tells about courtly love, a cheerful wife shares an Arthurian legend, a dirty cook is full of impolite anecdotes, and a variety of other great and diverse tales are told. ~ Rachel
