Excerpt from Selections From Chaucer
In preparing this volume the editor has endeavored to reduce to a minimum the apparatus necessary to accompany the reading of selections from Chaucer. The introduction is by no means so long as it might have been made; the notes are not so complete as would be expected if the book were to be used by specialists in Middle English. The editor suggests that the first three sections of the introduction be read, rapidly at the very outset; after some' sequamtadobﬂ has fbeen gained with the text, these sections may be read again more carefully. The sections pn.' Prg nunciation, on Inflection, and on Versification should of course be mastered early; the best my. Seems to be to require them to be studied in connection with very short passages from the text, so that each principle may be immediately applied. Since the vocabulary of the Prologue is distinctly difficult some teachers may prefer to begin the reading with the comparatively easy Nun's Priest's Tale. In this way the language Will seem less remote from the language of Shakspere, and atten tion may be centered upon the difficulties of pronunci ation and metre.
