Sintesi dell'editore

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

Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, a collection of narratives written between 1387 and 1400, tells of a group of 30 people from all layers of society who pass the time along their pilgrimage to Canterbury by telling stories to one another, their interaction mediated (at times) by the affable host - Chaucer himself. Naxos AudioBooks' third volume presents the tales of six people, here in an unabridged modern verse translation (by Frank Ernest Hill, 1935). This is an ideal way to appreciate the genuinely funny and droll talent of England's early master storyteller. Seven leading British actors bring the medieval world into the 21st century, and at least in terms of character, not much seems to have changed!

Recensioni editoriali

The most dogmatically religious and anti-Semitic of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, The Prioress’s Tale describes how a virtuous seven-year-old young boy is murdered for angelically singing praise to the Virgin Mother. Rosalind Shanks, veteran of BBC radio, stage, and television, ably performs the difficult task of creating a character believable both in her readiness to cry over a dead mouse as well as her steely condemnation of those she believes are enemies to her Lord. This selection, based on Frank Ernest Hill’s modern English translation, is from an original audiobook production of Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.

Nice Story and Well Read

One of Chaucer's shorter Canterbury Tales, but none the less enjoyable for that. A biting satire on the Prioress which is well-read by Rosalind Shanks and very good value at under £1.
