The Knight's Tale of medieval wars and chivalry is the first tale told to the pilgrims as they set out to Canterbury. It concerns Theseus, returning from fighting at Thebes, two brother knights Palamon and Arcite, imprisoned but yearning for their loves.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Knyghtes Tale: In Middle English (The Complete Classics)?

Read a Modern English version first  Mar 18, 2010
Unless you are versed in M.E,you may want to read or re-read The Knight's Tale in Modern English before listening to this. Otherwise it may be rather difficult to follow; in fact, it probably will be anyway, although pieces of it should be comprehensible. No one really knows what M.E. actually sounded like, as those pre-Luddite Middle English obdurately refused to record their spoken language. Towards the end, having pretty much given up on parsing the interpretation, I got a bit ear-weary, but carried on with it to the end. Fun, of a sort.
