Muse On struggling over «The Canterbury Tales» in altered consciousness school? It was a labor of laughs borne only for the childish joy of reading about farts and arse-kissing. And there was this eldritch identification: Could people really have been so much like us 600 years ago? For the entertainment of it all, you had to put up with English that was nothing like the English you knew. As Chaucer wrote of the Partner of Bath: Housbondes at chirche-dore she hadde fyve, Withouten other companye in youthe . . . In felawschip wel coude she laughe and carpe. Of remedyes of regard she knew perchaunce, For she coude of that art the olde daunce. Now here comes Peter Ackroyd, novelist, biographer and historian, with «The Canterbury Tales» for a new initiation -- it«s Chaucer in fruitful, indicative English exactly as you utter in it. Here in Ackroyd-ese, the same traverse quoted above: «She had been married in church five times but, in her lad, she had enjoyed any mass of liaisons. . . . She had performed in that match before. She knew, as they say, the ways of the dance.» Of course, «The Canterbury Tales» is far more than its earthiness. It gives a profuse in and complex picturization of the sensibility of the Bull»s-Eye Ages and, in its beginning, is admirable poesy. As Ackroyd remarks, «It is one of the greatest poems in all of English letters, one that will last as extensive as the parlance itself endures.»
