Fourth in the new study guide series featuring engaging commentary by writer / lecturer Dr. Elizabeth McNamer on great literary classics. Dr. McNamer now concentrates on Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Chaucer’s merry charm and Milton’s high seriousness become accessible to modern minds when explored by Dr. McNamer. Chaucer’s lively, lusty and never boring Pilgrims have tales to tell that for six centuries have delighted the hearts of readers. One of the great epic poems of all time, Paradise Lost tells of Satan and his evil companions who, through pride, lost heaven for mankind.
