The Gateway to Chaucer

Publisher Location: London; Edinburgh; Dublin; New York
Publisher Name: Thomas Nelson and Sons
Publication Date: 1912
Additional Information:
Underdown's Gateway to Chaucer includes marginal illustrations by Anderson on nearly every page.  Most of these illustrations depict small moments of the tale being told (for example, two women kneel, pleading, in the margins of the Knight's Tale when Emily, the queen, and the other ladies plead with Duke Theseus). 

The volume includes the Knight's Tale, the Man of Law's Tale, the Nun's Priest's Tale, the Wife of Bath's Tale, the Clerk's Tale, and the Franklin's Tale, as well as "interludes" that are generally drawn from the links between tales or from prologues.
