Students learn to read Chaucer’s Middle English and recite it. The Tales are studied both in the framework of the interrelated stories told by the pilgrim characters on the way to Cantebury and individually as they represent various medieval genres and issues of concern and interest to audiences both contemporary and modern. LIT
