Re: FSI

All character sketches. Including the Pardoner were fabulously painted in Camterbury Tales.

Re: Re: Kabu

yes...actually I was reading Dickens when about 10 yrs old but then went back when i grew up and gained a wider understanding I can always go back to read him and find a new perspective.

The Pardoner was the most intriguing to me.

Your analysis is that of a literary expert.  I enjoyed this post on humor immensely.  Humor is difficult to execute properly.......  I have often tried to be humorous,  only to have people take it the wrong way and attack me for it.  Is it my failure,  or theirs?  Usually it is their failure to understand the meaning of the joke.  Sadly,  this has caused me to avoid humor in most cases.  Perhaps you have encouraged me to try it again.......  Cheers

Re: Re: Re: Aba

By nature I am a fun-loving person. Sometimes in my writings, I tend to become serious; probably I am not then myself in certain senses. But it do come back. I thought I'll reveal a bit, Lol!

Re: Re: Aba

I'm smiling. Well done. Levity is always a pleasure. I don't think you are too serious, but what do I know? Many have said that I'm too serious. Hah!

Re: Aba

'Expect a bit more', that is the key you caught so well. I am glad it made for a fun read for you. I do it intentionally because at times I tend to become somewhat too serious. Thanks dear.

Oh, this was a fun post to read, Aba dear! I love how you broke it down for us, while explaining the characters and styles simply and succinctly. You students must love you! Though, I imagine you expect a bit more from them. LOL!

Re: C C T

Right now I am teaching Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist to MA classes, indeed his style is one such writer whose style I greatly enjoy. This is a sort of revisiting, but for me it means studying what I had almost forgotten.  Thank yo, Sir.

I was first introduced to the Cantebury Tales in senior English in high school! I have loved it ever since! Nice synopsis here, too! But then again I am used to that with your wonderful posts! Your Sis!

I didn't read Chaucer until I was in my late teens and I thoroughly enjoyed Canterbury tales ...it was a little vulgar in places for a young miss an' I remember.

Most books read in my time at school were Charles  Dickens. I think possibly because his books were re-written into more easily reading style. I have a set of earlier books which I have attempted to read at times. Of course styles change, Not many want to revisit talent if it means studying.
