2. "Colin mustered a perfunctory leer, but his mind was obviously elsewhere. 'Do you know...' he began.I knew many things, but I didn't think he needed to hear the entirety of the Prologue to the Canterbury Tales right at just this moment."
Author: Lauren Willig
3. "Chaucer's world in The Canterbury Tales brings together, for the first time, a diversity of characters, social levels, attitudes, and ways of life. The tales themselves make use of a similarly wide range of forms and styles, which show the diversity of cultural influences which the author had at his disposal. Literature, with Chaucer, has taken on a new role: as well as affirming a developing language, it is a mirror of its times - but a mirror which teases as it reveals, which questions while it narrates, and which opens up a range of issues and questions, instead of providing simple, easy answers."
Author: Ronald Carter

Today's Quote

Et sans doute une guerre est certainement trop be^te, mais cela ne l'empe^che pas de durer. La be^tise insiste toujours, on s'en apercevrait si l'on ne pensait pas toujours a` soi. Nos concitoyens a` cet e´gard e´taient comme tout le monde, ils pensaient a` eux-me^mes, autrement dit ils e´taient humanistes : ils ne croyaient pas aux fle´aux. Le fle´au n'est pas a` la mesure de l'homme, on se dit donc que le fle´au est irre´el, c'est un mauvais re^ve qui va passer. Mais il ne passe pas toujours et, de mauvais re^ve en mauvais re^ve, ce sont les hommes qui passent, et les humanistes en premier lieu, parce qu'ils n'ont pas pris leurs pre´cautions."
Author: Albert Camus
