Today we began looking at the prologue to Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales — get the notes from someone in class.
We paired up into partners to translate the first dozen or so lines of the book-length poem. Translate it into modern day English, but also translate it so that it still fits the conventions of Chaucer’s time — in other words, they should be rhyming couplets.
Here’s the sheet we used in class today: Prologue character sign up and questions. Ignore the stuff about character sign ups and questions. We’ll do that tomorrow.
