Editorial Reviews

The first of Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, inspired by Boccaccio’s epic poem Teseida, pits Thebian cousins Arcite and Palamon, once imprisoned in the same tower by Thesus, the Duke of Athens, against one another as they vie for the heart of an Athenian princess named Emily.
Edward de Souza’s reverberating, attention-commanding baritone has a stately quality that transports the listener to the front lines of the climactic battle, and his graceful command of the rhythmic iambic pentameter does justice to this canonical tale of chivalry and courtly love.

Publisher's Summary

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.
