Media Reviews
David Wright's new verse translation of the poems from the Canterbury Tales is lively, readable...it should lead many delighted readers to Chaucer. --Manuscripta
Indeed the best translation I have seen and will replace the version I had been using. The binding appears able to withstand constant use, and the price is fine for student budgets. This text, with Kane's biography and the Chaucer Glossary will make a fine course! --The College of Staten Island,
City University of New York
With Wright's translation in print, there is no excuse for withholding Chaucer from any class offering an introduction to literature. --Anthony Ugolnik, Franklin & Marshall College
I have found this translation to be the most thorough and easily read. I will recommend it to all my students as a companion to our main text. --Paul R. Lehman, University of Central Oklahoma
I reviewed all the versions of Canterbury Tales in print and yours was by far the most lucid translation--real resonances of the original. --Dean Rader, SUNY, Binghamton
