THE PARDONERS TALE, THE FRANKELEYNS TALE, THE NONNE PREESTES TALE From The Canterbury Tales

by | Read by Richard Bebb

Classics • 2.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

These three of Chaucer's most well-known tales will be familiar to any seasoned scholar or veteran of English 101. There's just one thing—Richard Bebb reads the selections in the original Middle English. Under the guidance of British Chaucer scholar Derek Brewer, Bebb's performance is so expressive and engaging as to make the "language barrier" secondary to the experience of simply listening to the cadence, rhythm, and poetry inherent in the words. This volume is perfect for any English literature classroom, as Bebb's reading communicates both Chaucer's biting humor and his literary grace. Bebb's recording is a great way for students and aficionados alike to get an authentic sampling of Chaucer's masterpiece. A.H.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
