From the Publisher

Two-part adaptation of Geoffrey Chaucer’s tales by Tony award winner adaptor Mike Poulton. All the famous characters are here as well as many less well-known but equally full of life. Each of the stories has its own style—heroic verse for the Knight’s Tale, vernacular rhymes for the Miller’s Tale etc.—echoing the many narrative voices employed by Chaucer himself.

Geoffrey Chaucer was born in London, the son of a wine-merchant. He fought in France, then went there and to Italy on diplomatic missions. His Canterbury Tales, begun in 1387, is one of the foundations stones of our literature and our language. Mike Poulton has a string of successful translations and adaptations to his name, most notably Turgenev's "Fortune's Fool" (which won a Tony Award) and Schiller's "Don Carlos"...
