Excerpt from Canterbury Tales, Vol. 1 of 2 Rough, dear heart, sir - and half suppressing a smile, she again looked towards the sea. The tide came roll ing in with a full wave, the force of which was increased, as well by the season of the year, as by a most refresh ing breeze: while the sun played over a vast expanse of green, dazzling the eye with its luster, and brightening the spray, which dashed high as it approached the shore': the whole scene conveying to those that were accustomed to sea-views the most lively sensation of Spirit and gayety.

"This edition ... contains the sources and major analogues of Chaucer's works (some re-edited from manuscripts closer to his own copies) together with discoveries from the past half-century, some of which have not previously appeared together in print. Special features in this new enterprise include a fresh interpretation of Chaucer's sources for the frame of the work, and modern English translations of all non-English texts; chapters on the individual tales contain an updated survey of the present state of scholarship on their source material".--BOOKJACKET.
“The present edition of Chaucer contains an entirely new Text, founded solely on the manuscripts and on the earliest accessible printed editions. For correct copies of the manuscripts, I am indebted, except in a few rare instances, to the admirable texts published by the Chaucer Society. In each case, the best copy has been selected as the basis of the text, and has only been departed from where other copies afforded a better reading. All such variations, as regards the wording of the text, are invariably recorded in the footnotes at the bottom of each page; or, in the case of the Treatise on the Astrolabe, in Critical Notes immediately following the text. Variations in the spelling are also recorded, wherever they can be said to be of consequence. But I have purposely abstained from recording variations of reading that are certainly inferior to the reading given in the text.”
Excerpt from The Canterbury Tales of Chaucer, Vol. 2 of 3: To Which Are Added an Essay on His Language and Versification, and an Introductory Discourse, Together, With Notes and a Glossary But it was not better than James I. Of Scotland, when immured in Windsor Castle, writing, or at least collecting the materials of his King's Qubair than Tasso making to him wings with which to fly from the hospital of St Anne, where he was inju riously confined, to the summits of the delectable mountains of poetry; than Sir Walter Raleigh soaring from the Tower to Ararat, to Lebanon, to the Seven Hills of Rome, while producing his great History of the World; or than Bunyan dreaming his wondrous Pilgrim's Progress in the damp dungeon at Bed ford - his body bound, while his soul was travelling to and back again from that city which hath no need of the sun. The sup posed case of Caleb Williams illustrates principally the force of dauntless resolution, blended with contemptuous defiance of the world; the real story of Bunyan displays the power of piety and of faith, as well as of uncontrollable genius.
