I haven't read this book yet, but I studied at U. of Michigan and Thomas Garbaty was one of the most exciting and beloved professors in the English Department. I ended up studying whatever he was teaching, whether or not the subject matter was directly related to my major, just because I knew it would be fascinating.

Dr. Garbaty's light touch as an editor coupled with the wonderfully helpful additional material helps open modern readers to another world. The depth and breadth of the collection shows just how much more there was in Medieval times than just Chaucer (as great as he was). A must have for any student, professional or amateur, of the English language.
