The Canterbury Tales
Chaucer. A band of pilgrims tell stories as they travel. A delightful gallery of verbal portraits. A bit bawdy at times, yes, but so vivid, fresh, and interesting, it's astonishing to think that these stories have been read for over 600 years. A full hundred years before Columbus came to America, people were laughing at the Wife of Bath. Now you can join in the laughter.
