About the Author

Andrew Taylor is Professor of English at the University of Ottawa.
"Boenig and Taylor have produced a welcome addition to the already-rich offerings available for the study of Chaucer in the classroom. The text hews closely to the Ellesmere Manuscript, making it useful for discussions of manuscript contexts of The Canterbury Tales. And both students and teachers will find the materials that frame the poem to be valuable aids in its study; the introduction offers a concise history of Chaucer and the reception of his work while the excerpted source texts that follow the poem are well chosen and provide crucial context." -- Timothy Stinson, North Carolina State University
Praise for the complete edition:
"With its meticulously edited text, generous glosses and notes, abundant selections from relevant medieval sources, and attractive reproductions of the sumptuous pages of the Ellesmere Manuscript, the Broadview Canterbury Tales will become the obvious choice for teachers, students, and general readers alike." -- John T. Sebastian, Loyola University New Orleans
"This is the best edition of the Tales I've found to date." -- John Marlin, College of Saint Elizabeth
