Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages
Is it weird that Chaucer's greatest contribution to modern pop culture is a Heath Ledger movie? I mean, the movie really has nothing to do with the Canterbury Tales but the title, but still. Anyway, the Norton skips over the Knight's Tale, which is odd since it's arguably the most famous story in Chaucer's book. I guess the editors figured we'd already had our fill of knights in shining armor, which is certainly true. In any event, I couldn't let this book go by without at least one crappy joke about "A Knight's Tale," so here you go. Enjoy, or don't. Whatever.
