Product Description:

Four of the original Canterbury tales have been artfully translated and adapted by Barbara Cohen in this lovely, 87-page hardcover storybook. Staying true to the feel of Chaucer's original work, Cohen presents The Nun's Priest's Tale, The Pardoner's Tale, The Wife of Bath's Tale, and The Franklin's Tale in simple, yet elegant prose. Brilliant, fanciful illustrations by Trina Schart Hyman accompany the text. Please note that this book contains some "dark" artwork, such as the personification of death, which bears the classic appearance of the Grim Reaper. ~ Rachel P.

From 500 A.D. to 1530 A.D., this literature approach to history takes students through the medieval period via some of the best classic and historic literature available. Students read works by classic authors such as Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Sir Walter Scott. They learn about heroic figures of the time like Wycliffe, Tyndale, Joan of Arc, Luther, Saladin and more. This one-year course has been revised and the publishers have broken the study into two guides; one for intermediate/junior high grades, and one for high school. The guides are now full-color. The Intermediate/Junior High guide features 35 weekly lessons with reading assignments, mapping activities, research and discussion topics, hands-on and craft suggestions, vocabulary lists and more.




Category Description for Middle Ages - Canterbury Tales:

This classic by Geoffrey Chaucer begins by giving details about a group of people who are journeying to Canterbury. All these different kinds of people share stories, and these tales are captured here to show readers how different people lived and thought in medieval England. A knight tells about courtly love, a cheerful wife shares an Arthurian legend, a dirty cook is full of impolite anecdotes, and a variety of other great and diverse tales are told. ~ Rachel

Read during use of Romans, Reformers, Revolutionaries because I didn't want to get into the full version (for several reasons). Gave my students the "flavor" of Canterbury Tales.
