Classics Book Club - A Knight’s Tale by Geoffrey Chaucer

Thursday, August 26, 2021
10:30 am11:30 am

Our classics book club will be meeting at Getty Heights Park on the fourth Thursday of each month at 10:30 AM (weather permitting). We will be reading and discussing classic works of literature. Sign up now to be included in the email list.

This month we will be reading A Knight’s Tale by Geoffrey Chaucer.

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. But the real hero of this recording is Richard Bebb who, with the help of Professor Derek Brewer, the leading expert on Chaucerian pronunciation, make the original Middle English not only comprehensible to the modern ear, but exciting.
