The Man of Law's Tale

1.  In Middle English

The Introduction to the Man of Law's Tale, the Man of Law's Prologue, Man of Law's Tale, and Man of Law's Epilogue at the UVa Electronic Text Center

Read the Man of Law's Introduction, Prologue, Tale, and Epilogue in the context of Fragment II - Group B1

2.  In Modern English Translation

Scott Gettman's edition of the Canterbury Tales (Electronic Literature Foundation) is accessible by individual tale & available in a variety of formats:  Middle English, Modern English, Facing Page, & Interpolated - Glossed (frames; from unknown base text).

  • Although unsuitable for formal research or college work, the ELF is the best online version for younger readers and those unfamiliar with Middle English. Easily navigable, and the Middle English glosses are very helpful.

The Litrix Reading Room translation of the Canterbury Tales features rhyming couplets.

Sinan Kökbugur's helpfully glossed hypertext Middle English rendition of the complete Canterbury Tales is available at the Librarius page. Use the Table of Contents in the left frame to click on a specific Tale, and difficult terms and phrases are glossed in the lower frame. 

Skip Knox's selection of Canterbury Tales in Modern English (Boise State) includes the Man of Law's Introduction, the Prologue to the Man of Law's Tale, and the Man of Law's Tale (from an unknown base text).

London's Inner Temple, the 'law school' where the Manciple is said to have served (A.567) and the Sergeant of Law would have been trained (A.309-30), has put online a concise account of its history and development.

English Legal History Materials (Robert Palmer, UHouston) contains technical discussion and primary materials in translation for different aspects of the law in medieval England.
