About this ebook

Los cuentos de Canterbury (en inglés, The Canterbury Tales) es una obra del escritor inglés Geoffrey Chaucer, que presenta una estructura semejante al Decamerón, de Boccaccio. Los cuentos fueron escritos a finales del siglo XIV.

Los cuentos de Canterbury es una de las obras más importantes de la literatura inglesa, y quizás la mejor obra de la Edad Media en Inglaterra. Fue la última obra de Geoffrey Chaucer. La versión de la obra que prevalece hoy en día procede de dos manuscritos ingleses diferentes: el Ellesmere y los manuscritos Hengwrt.

Author

Geoffrey Chaucer

Often referred to as the father of English poetry, Geoffrey Chaucer was a fourteenth-century philosopher, alchemist, astrologer, bureaucrat, diplomat, and author of many significant poems. Chaucer’s writing was influential in English literary tradition, as it introduced new rhyming schemes and helped develop the vernacular tradition—the use of everyday English—rather than the literary French and Latin, which were common in written works of the time. Chaucer’s best-known—and most imitated—works include The Canterbury Tales, Troilus and Criseyde, The Book of the Duchess, and The House of Fame.
