This is the first Ukrainian translation of The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1343–1400), a masterpiece of the classic English literature. The Canterbury Tales is a collection of stories told by pilgrims on a pilgrimage to the tomb of Saint Thomas Becket in Canterbury. The narrators include representatives of almost all strata of the English society of the time, and their stories, very diverse thematically, offer a good glimpse of their lifestyle. In a way, The Canterbury Tales can be read as an encyclopedia of the life of the medieval society. In addition to its brilliant and uniquely ironic style, this masterpiece creates a vibrant and infinitely kind account brimming with boundlessly faith in humankind. It is striking in its extraordinary ability to admire even the most horrible traits its characters may exhibit. The present edition is illustrated with fragments of the Ellesmere Manuscript (1410).
