Award-winning poet Patience Agbabi presents an inspired remix of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales retelling all of the stories, from the Miller's Tale to the Wife of Bath's in her own critically acclaimed poetic style. Celebrating Chaucer's Middle-English masterwork for its performance element as well as its poetry and pilgrims, Agbabi's collection is utterly unique. Boisterous, funky, foul-mouthed, sublimely lyrical, and bursting at the seams,Telling Tales takes one of our most significant works of literature and gives it thrilling new life.
