Sintesi dell'editore

This is a story from the Canterbury Tales I: Modern Verse Translation collection.

Chaucer's greatest work, written towards the end of the fourteenth century, paints a brilliant picture of medieval life, society and values. The stories range from the romantic, courtly idealism of "The Knight's Tale" to the joyous bawdy of the Miller's; all are told with a freshness and vigor in this modern verse translation that make them a delight to hear.

Abridged???

What's there is good, but it's so short anyway, why abridge it and strip it of context and completeness? Don't bother with this unless you've read the whole thing. It's just a curiosity, well executed.

GREAT PERFORMANCE

This is a great piece of historic literature dating from the end of the 14th Century, a treat as we have little from that era. The ever funny and energetic actor Clive Merrison acka the wonderful Radio Sherlock Holmes, does a great job in his recital of this little master piece. Not a work for most listeners, but if like me you love Chaucer, you should like this gem.
