The general prologue & the physician's tale by Geoffrey Chaucer( Recording )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is an authoritative performance that brilliantly evokes the fourteenth-century world, both for the general reader and the student alike. This is followed by a witty modern verse translation, and provides a fascinating contrast with the original
