Review "Builds a needed bridge for the general student between the 20th and 14th centuries."

--Kent Williams, Troy State University, AL

"Readers coming to 'The Canterbury Tales' for the first time should…buy Vincent Hopper's interlinear translation…To my knowledge, Hopper's rendering is as close, as word for word, as any translation of 'The Canterbury Tales'... It places the new word directly under the original word -- a device that makes the syntax feel old-fashioned but that will also quickly teach you Middle English, which is not hard."
--Joan Acocella,The New Yorker pdf
