I was a little worried about reading The Canterbury Tales because of the language. Chaucer is another author I found very difficult in high school and I thought the language of the book to be almost impossible. As Professor Berger pointed out, it is much easier if you just read the verse like modern English and the explanation of words on the margin is very helpful as well. I think that the introduction is very interesting and poetic especially because this is considered one of the first poetry pieces of all time.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
