The Canterbury TalesDVD - 1998
Written in the 14th century, The Canterbury Tales has stood the test of time as a landmark in the development of English literature. In this program, experts from the University of Warwick discuss the tradition of 14th-century poetry, the General Prologue, Chaucer's social grouping of the pilgrims and the themes they explore, and the poem as a reflection of Medieval English society. Dramatic reenactments of the pilgrims on horseback and numerous period images help bring the tales to life.
