Editorial Reviews

Medieval master Geoffrey Chaucer’s literary classic begins with the narrator extolling the return of spring and detailing the background of how and why certain pilgrims to the Saint Thomas Becket relics at Canterbury Cathedral came together. The noted Welsh character actor Philip Madoc engages his rich, sonorous baritone to provide the brief descriptions of the fellow travelers and to set the stage for the humorous, serious, bawdy, but always very human tales to follow as the pilgrims make their way along the historic path. This selection, based on Frank Ernest Hill’s modern English translation, is from an original audiobook production of Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.

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.
