Viet vet, currently RN. Popular and trendy are not necessarily great. Time weeds the path to the garden of great classics

    Story
    (204)

    In this edition, we hear, translated into modern English, 20-some tales, told in the voices of knight and merchant, wife and miller, squire and nun, and many more. Some are bawdy, some spiritual, some romantic, some mysterious, some chivalrous. Between the stories, the travelers converse, joke, and argue, revealing much about their individual outlooks upon life as well as what life was like in late 14th-century England.

    Tad Davis says: "Many voices, at times enthralling"
    "Finally it made sense..."

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Canterbury Tales to be better than the print version?

    Gee. I've struggled in print both in old english and whatever modern translation I had but this translation was alive whereas in the past the language stood in my way. This time the language enhanced the personalities of the story...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I forget her name but she had intensely foul language.. and poetry to boot..


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was a good group for the various voices.. Women and men telling the tale..


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No not one moment but I realized that I probably am a medieval christian prior to being a Buddhist..


    Any additional comments?

    Listen and let this solve the mystery of what the whole trip was about...
