Videorecordings

While writing the last post I thought, “Chaucer videos!” Going to look, the best the college has is this.

2 videocassettes (30 min. ea.) : sd., col. ; 1/2 in.
Contents:
pt. 1. Leaving London: the nun’s priest’s tale, the knight’s tale, and the wife of Bath’s tale (ca. 30 min.) — pt. 2. Arriving at Canterbury: the merchant’s tale, the pardoner’s tale, and the franklin’s tale (ca. 30 min.)
Summary:
Animated versions, in a variety of styles, of the stories told by pilgrims on their way to Canterbury.
Notes:
Presented in two versions: modern English and Middle English.

So in an hour you can cover most of the Canterbury Tales. Amazing.
