In the fourteenth century Geoffrey Chaucer, who served three kings as a customs official and special envoy, virtually invented English poetry. He did so by wedding the language of common speech to metrical verse, creating a medium that could accommodate tales of courtly romance, bawdy fabliaux, astute psychological portraiture, dramatic monologues, moral allegories, and its author's astonishing learning in fields from philosophy to medicine and astrology. Chaucer's accomplishment is unequalled by any poet before Shakespeare and--in The Canterbury Tales and Troilus and Cressida--ranks with that of the great English novelists.   Both The Canterbury Tales and Troilus and Cressida are presented complete in this anthology, in fresh modern translations by Theodore Morrison that convey both the gravity and gaiety of the Middle English originals. The Portable Chaucer also contains selections from The Book of Duchess, The House of Fame, The Bird's Parliament, and The Legend of Good Women, together with short poems. Morrison's introduction is vital for its insights into Chaucer as man and artist, and as a product of the Middle Ages whose shrewdness, humor, and compassion have a wonderfully contemporary ring.… (més)

This book has a collection of many short stories in it, each with humor, and each with a theme. It takes place in an inn, where a group of pilgrims are staying for the night. Then the inn keeper tells them, they each must tell a story. So each of the different pilgrims, with different occupations and personalities, tells a tale, until morning is reached. Most of the tales are bawdy,comical, and have a theme. The book takes the point of view from one of the pilgrims, named Chauser, who listens to the different tales, but never interacts in the story. The pros of this book would definitely be it's comedy, poetry, challenge, action and love. Also, the point of view from various occupations, one to another, is interesting. The cons of this book would be, it's tendency to use unmeaningful words just to complete a rhyme. ( )

To F.N. Robinson - You have with patience and cheerfulness obliged me by reading the manuscript of this book. You have caught misunderstandings of which I was guilty and have give me admirable literary advice as well. I have pillaged the editorial matter in your edition of Chaucer's text, and without holding you responsible in any way for errors or ineptitudes on my part, I can say that this is a better book for your friendly aid. ~Theodore Morrison, 01-1949

The first edition, Number 47 in the Viking Portable Library, persisted from 1949 to 1974. In 1975, the revised edition was published by Viking and Penguin as Number 81 (although the numbering was only preserved in the paperback ISBN from 1975 until about 1993, at which point it was abandoned entirely for new volumes in the VPL). As of mid-2017, there has been no new revised edition of the Portable Chaucer since the 1975 edition, and as Penguin has abandoned the old ISBN scheme with the current black-spined editions, any new version would fall later still in the numbering sequence. Therefore, all editions published prior to 1975 should be assigned No. 47, and all those after No. 81, including the 1975 hardcover, the wrap-around photo cover edition, and the white-spined 1990s edition.
