Gray cloth w/bright gilded title, lightly worn edges and corners, soft ends. All edges dust soiled & scrape dents on the bottom - no tears. Neat underlining and marginalia first 14 pages only. (iii-vi) 1001 pg. , including bibliography and glossary. Editied by E. Talbot Donaldson, one of the most notable Chaucerians of the last century [this] book presents a wide selection of Chaucer's verse in normalized text and comments on these poems with notable good sense. Includes only select poetic tales of Canterbury, Troilus and Criseyde, and a judicious selection of the early poems and lyrics. Adjusted spelling and punctuation, helpful glosses, and short explanatory notes ease modern reading, but more importantly, extensive appended commentary on each work and on miscellaneous topics provides insightful discussion of Chaucer's works. The glossary, short bibliography, and especially the commentary are a good point of departure for any first-time investigation of Chaucer and valuable touchstones for more advanced criticism.
