Geoffrey, B. C. (n.d.). The Canterbury Tales. Retrieved from

A collection of tales presented as part of a story-telling contest by a group of pilgrims as they travel together on a journey from Southwark to the shrine of Saint Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral. The prize for this contest is a free meal at the Tabard Inn at Southwark on their return. This is a modernized translation, retaining Chaucer's rhyme scheme, and close to the original, but eliminating archaisms which would require explanatory notes.
