Canterbury Tales

I need to find an online version of the Canterbury Tales to read the Prologue. I tried three sites but they do not work or I don't understand them. Does anyone know any other websites to find the Canterbury Tales ?

  1. Project Gutenberg (Google it) has free plain text e-books. Search for 'canterbury' in the sidebar. They seem to have it there.

    Use the LEFT column of this website to navigate -- find the side-by-side versions so you can see the original in Chaucer's English AND in today's English.
