1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 The Open Access Companion to the Canterbury Tales is a virtual volume created by an international team of scholarly contributors.

The first stage of the companion will feature one essay chapter for every major textual unit of the Tales;  in the future, the companion will add additional seasons with new topical perspectives on each tale from different scholars.
