Chaucer's wonderful, subtle story-telling is too good to be left to medieval specialists; it belongs to everyone who loves literature. This course is intended for those new to Chaucer and with no knowledge of Middle English. They will discover the pleasure and interest at the heart of some of the best Tales, and by the end of the week will be reading Chaucer in the medieval text with fluency and delight.
