He /lit/, I want to get into Chaucer, and other anons here have recommended the Riverside edition.

Is this edition in Middle English? I'd appreciate if any anon who owns it could take some pictures to random pages, and perhaps to the Notes section, because Amazon's preview doesn't get to that part.

I don't have it, but I've flipped through that edition in a bookstore once and it's in Middle English with a good deal (but not an overwhelming amount) of footnotes to help you.

Thanks for your replies.

I've read that it also has marginal glosses for words that are out of use, so then it would be the perfect edition.

I was thinking of getting the Norton Critical Editions, but I think this would be a better deal for the price and content.

The Norton only has 15 of the Tales, and no other works by Chaucer.

You'd be able to find a fair deal of secondary material on Chaucer online as well.

The Riverside is the gold standard for Chaucer. Never seen a course use any other edition.

There are two other editions though, one for Troilus and Criseyde and another one for Chaucer's Dream Visions.
