Canterbury Tales: A Busybody’s Favorite

Everybody knows a busybody or has a snooping neighbor—if you don’t know someone like this, it’s probably you! Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales is a fantastic novel-in-verse for busybodies everywhere, featuring a broad cast of characters portrayed with all of the details we love to snoop on.
