I find the editorial policy of this edition interesting. There are what appear to be “time outs” inserted in the middle of the tales as if the editors made the decision that the stories were too long and the readers needed to take a break from all that heavy reading. Of particular interest is the insertion of the poem “The Babes in the Wood” which on a child’s careless reading might be the story of the two cousins in “The Knight’s Tale.” I wonder if children were confused by its placement in the book.
