The Canterbury Tales is the title of a collection of 24 satirical anecdotes attributed to the author Geoffrey Chaucer, who took away public collection and compilation in the period 1387 – 1400. This work is considered to be one of the best writings and a pioneer in the movement of writing travel stories, especially when it comes to the wandering lifestyle (peregrinus).
The original Caunterbury story consisted of verses that rhyme some 84 syllables, but over time they have been preached in prose to make it easier for the lower classes to read. Caunterbury is considered a precious repository of English after William I, but translators have always sought ways to translate Medieval English into a modern discourse that seemed impossible.
