    (source: Nielsen Book Data) Summary This series aims to introduce students to a wide variety of critical opinion and to show students, by example, how to construct a good critical essay. This collection of specially-commissioned short critical essays is designed for A level students. The Companion to Chaucer Studies has been devised to help students when they confront the formidable mass of Chaucerian scholarship. In particular, it endeavors to give those possessing limited library facilities some idea of the critical background that seems essential for an appreciation of Chaucer's poetry at any but a superficial level.

    Continues to offer the benefits of the previous critically acclaimed edition by presenting the original Middle English of Chaucer's poetry with an elegant, direct, line-by-line and often word-by-word translation. This format gives students and general readers immediate appreciation of Chaucer. Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales—the most celebrated literary work of medieval England—portrays the culture of the late Middle Ages as a deeply commercial environment, replete with commodities and dominated by market relationships. However, the market is not the only mode of exchange in Chaucer’s world, or in his poem. In Chaucer’s Gifts, Robert Epstein reveals the complex gift.
