The Canterbury Tales III: The Summoner’s Tale , The Friar’s Tale , The Manciple’s Tale , The Doctor’s Tale , The Seaman’s Tale , The Lawyer’s Tale

Geoffrey Chaucer, Timothy West, Charles Kay

Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, a collection of narratives a frame story, written between 1387 and 1400, tells of a group of thirty people from all layers of society who pass the time along their pilgrimage to Canterbury by telling stories to one another, their interaction mediated (at times) by the affable Host Chaucer himself. Naxos AudioBooks' third volume presents the tales of 5 people, here in unabridged modern verse translation (by Frank Ernest Hill, 1935) an ideal way to appreciate the genuinely funny and droll talent of England’s early master storyteller. Five leading British actors bring the medieval world into the 21st century, and at least in terms of character, not much seems to have changed!
