Canterbury Tales (Oxford World's Classics) - AbeBooks - Geoffrey Chaucer:

Commenting on this text in the Customer Reviews column of Amazon, several readers stressed how essential it was, for anyone wanting to appreciate Chaucer properly, to make the effort to read him in the original. Before, with translated versions, I had never quite understood why Chaucer was considered so great, so necessary to the canon. Hearing them in the original form, I suddenly understood.

The tales are … told in striking, blood-stirring rhyme and rhythm. Hearing them read aloud was like music to the ear. Which makes the smoothed-over versions feel flat and dead …. Presumably the editorial pundits at Norton read this comment. What they made of it can be deduced from the fact that just over five years later they have produced a flat if not altogether dead and decidedly smoothed-over Canterbury Tales of their own.

They are by no means alone in this endeavor, which makes the habit all the more puzzling. I have on my shelves in addition to a scholarly variorum edition, not relevant here three fat paperbacks of the Canterbury Tales , and they are not the only ones in print. The third, Peter G. Wright himself a poet Coghill and Fisher all—Wright intermittently—offer rhymed translations in the original metres most often what came to be known as heroic couplets. Beidler opts for line-by-line literalism in what one can treat, charitably, as either prose or free verse.

His is thus the nearest equivalent to a plain trot, and arguably the most useful of the four. I say this for two reasons. For this reason, it is a misnomer to describe its modernization as a translation.
