The Canterbury Tales in Middle English, is the true unabridged version of the Tales. Though this is a good translation, and well-read, it pales in comparison to the original; hearing Chaucer's words in Middle English is the only way to get the full effect of the poetry.
The only audible book that I wished I had not purchased! I found the language too difficult to enjoy in an audible fashion. This is suppose to be a classic, but found myself forcing myself to listen to it. I have a pretty broad range of interest, but this definately had no interest for me.
I don't enjoy shakespeare or poems. I had to stop listening to this after an hour. It's written in old english and everything rhymes. I know it's a classic but I guess I'm not up to the challenge. I think I'll have to get the Cliff Notes version.
