  • A Golden Key
    Mary Eliza Haweis’s introduction to Chaucer’s work and legacy for young readers. The book is widely credited with reviving Chaucer’s poems for the modern world. These stories from The Canterbury Tales, along with some of Chaucer's shorter poems, were the first to be presented in their original Middle English format alongside contemporary English. In addition, the translations are supplemented by a variety of footnotes providing many fascinating details and background information, setting the scene, tone, and history of each of these wonderful tales.

    First published in 1877, this edition is derived from the original book with 9 color illustrations and numerous black and white illustrations throughout by the author.  As always, this edition is complete and unabridged.

    **Presented in large 8.5" x 11" format.

    ***Note this is a facsimile reprint of the original text. Care has been taken to remove unnecessary page marks and other signs of age. All illustrations have been color restored.
