The book is virtually unique in providing, in a single volume, a comprehensive analysis of The General Prologue. It places the work in the context of the social change in late fourteenth century England and analyzes each pilgrim’s description in socio-historical terms. The poem is supported by the author’s own modernization of the text to enable the reader to understand Chaucer’s Middle English.
