Lesson 10


You should now be able to read Chaucer's works in any edition without the help of interlinear translations and the discipline of quizzes and such.

But some may still need such help, if only occasionally. Interlinear translations are provided for all the other Canterbury Tales.  Click here to see the list of tales.

Self tests are also available for the translations: see if you wish, to check your reading of your printed text.

First, read the summary of the tale.

Then read through the tale, either in the interlinear translation or in your printed text.

Then take the test or tests provided for this tale and, when you are ready, read the Tale in your printed text, making full use of its page glosses and explanatory notes.

Or ignore this advice and do as you will. So long as you enjoy reading Chaucer, it does not matter all that much.
