My 15 year old son enjoys literature and wants to read all of The Canterbury Tales. A couple of questions:
1. How appropriate is this for a very mature 15 year old boy that will probably study literature in college in some capacity? What is the level of inappropiatness? I glanced over the warnings that you all put out and the ones we looked at we had no problem with and I would not have cautioned my son. He does not want to be surprised with something that is way off for a 15 year old boy to be reading but he also wants to read these.
2. What book do you suggest he read these from if you could suggest any? He found two today at the library : one is a Bantam Classic and is edited and translated by Peter G. Beidler building on an earlier edidtion by Hieatt and Hieatt. He also found a Penguin book edition titled: The Portable Chaucer edited and translated by Theodore Morrison. If he does read these he would like to read them from a good translation.
