Oxford Classic Playscripts: Canterbury Tales Geoffrey Chaucer is dead! In a dramatic attempt to bring him back to life, four medieval alchemists invite a group of Chaucer's best-known pilgrims - the Knight, the Wife of Bath, the Pardoner, the Nun's Priest, and the Miller - to tell their Canterbury Tales. * New, innovative activities specifically tailored to support the KS3 Framework for Teaching English and help students to fulfil the Framework objectives. Activities include work on Speaking and Listening, close text analysis, and the structure of playscripts, and act as a springboard for personal writing.

Industry Reviews

`Lively, upbeat, great fun: lots of staging and props ideas for the novice director, those with more experience will enjoy being more experimental. Great for Year 9s' 5 Start Amazon review `The kids can really have a lot of fun with the quirky style and the character of the Pardoner always gets an enthusiastic response. It is an ideal way to introduce Chaucer to teens who might be a bit intimidated by jumping straight into the middle English of the original' 5 Star Amazon review
