Love, sex, drunkenness, murder, villainy... Chaucer's Canterbury Tales is one of the cornerstones of English literature, peopled with flawed, richly human characters such as the Miller, the Wife of Bath and the Franklin. Novelist and historian Peter Ackroyd has rendered the tales into crisp and compulsive modern prose while preserving their unique blend of romance, satire and bawdy humour. Each tale is illustrated with a witty and stylish drawing by Nick Bantock.
