The author's last work, it is composed in a series of letters. Thackeray writes in English Humorists: 'Winifred Jenkins and Tabitha Bramble must keep Englishmen on the grin for ages yet to come; and in their letters and the story of their loves there is a perpetual fount of sparkling laughter.' The notes deal fully with people and places, contemporary events, and fashions, and throw light on the social background of the story." RG4 The Modern Library of the World's Best Books

NEW MYLAR COVER 4/3/6/N Seymour. "In the Canterbury Tales the pilgrimage device gave Chaucer an opportunity to bring together a band of pilgrims who represented most of the occupations and social groups of his day. The diversity of the narrators in turn made possible an equally varied collection of tales, including chivalric romance, spiritual allegory, courtly lay, beast fable and literary satire. And all the time behind the tales, originating and interrupting them, interpenetrating and linking many of them together, is the great tale of the pilgrimage itself." RG4
