This was a read for university.

For what it is worth, Chaucer has a sense of humor! It wasn't what I was expecting at all. I could laugh at the stories, and I could also identify different moral tales from them all at the same time too. You've got to love books which are as cleverly constructed and well written as this. [Note: I haven't read ALL the stories. Some.]

However, I had to translate it myself as well as I was/am learning medieval English for university. At least, how to translate and read it. Even though this wasn't as difficult as Sir Gwain and the Green Knight as I have progressed in my medieval English, it was still a bit trying and stole some of the enjoyment of reading. But this is a personal experience and not a criticism of Chaucer's work.
