This will be the page where I put things that don't fit anywhere else. I have a feeling that it may become the longest page!THE PARLIAMENT OF FOWLS


 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A1HG66Y THE PARLIAMENT OF FOWLSThe Parliament of Fowls by Geoffrey Chaucer is a work I translated originally for my personal use when I was studying English literature. I found that having the book rendered in modern English made it much easier for me to read the book as a whole, without frequent and tedious searching to discover the meaning of words and passages.The Parliament of Fowls was originally in rhyming verse. I have not attempted this, simply tried to convey the meaning as clearly as possible.

It consists of a fairly long introduction leading to the section where the birds take centre stage.

I would be very pleased if this book proved to be of worth to students of English literature. If you are not a student you may in any case be interested in finding out more about early English writing. This modern English translation will, I hope, make Chaucer's 'Parliament of Fowls' more accessible and convenient.
