More > Tale,” “The Nun’s Priest’s Tale,” “The Friar’s Tale,” “The Physician’s Tale,” “The Lawyer’s Tale,” and “The Squire’s Tale.” Three of my seven reviews are based on Chaucer’s original Middle English text, which is presented in Peter Beidler’s edition of “The Canterbury Tales.” For those who do not read Middle English, Peter Beidler presents a modern English translation.
