If you comprehend a story better by listening to it read to you rather than reading it yourself, here's this awesome website called LibriVox I found where you can hear the audio version of the prologue and each character's tale. The best part is, it's an actual human reading and not a Siri sounding, monotoned robot.
If you prefer reading a story, here's a source with the prologue in it's original text and modern english text. Another source containing the general prologue as well as both prologue and tale of each character can be found here. Hope this helps!
