Chaucer and the Canterbury Tales

Chaucer and the Canterbury Tales

This site is the course page for Jane Zatta's Chaucer class. In addition to a judicious selection of links to background material, it includes commentary on 14 of the Canterbury Tales, along with summaries of and excepts from sources and analogues. It also includes a very useful summary of "Some Important Events in the Fourteenth Century," a generous selection of images, and sound files (in .wav format) for the first 42 lines of the General Prologue.
