Product Description
Chaucer's English: A Quiz Deck from The Canterbury Tales
This 48-card deck presents excerpts from Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales—in an intriguing language we now call Middle English—with modern translations and concise, illuminating commentaries on the card backs. The original wording challenges us to understand what Chaucer (1343–1400) was saying about life in his time. In many ways, the half century during which he lived was very different from our own, yet there is much we share with the pilgrims who made their way to Canterbury, telling stories to pass the time. Even though many of its sounds are foreign to our ears, it is amazing how clearly Chaucer’s language speaks to us if we allow ourselves to become immersed in it.

Middle English text is from The Riverside Chaucer, 3rd ed. (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1987).
