Chaucer's Canterbury Tales - Now and Then

This is a flourishing group of six, making leisurely progress with the pilgrims through the Canterbury Tales. We consider the tales in relation to both the 14th century and the present day, looking at social, religious and other aspects.

We read the first few tales in the Coghill translation, but have now progressed to studying them in the original Middle English, which is proving relatively easy and very satisfying. Our next project, with the aid of CDs, is to develop skills in aural comprehension and pronunciation. This could be quite a long project!
