The Knights Tale 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Regardless of what certain other ignorant reviewers believe, Chaucer's tale has no relation whatsoever to the popular film "A Knight's Tale." Chaucer tells the story of two cousins who feud over a woman with whom they are both in love. The ending is ironic and heartbreaking, as any good literature should be. Turn off your DVD player and read the tale!

This is a story about a peasant who takes over for a knight when the knight dies. The man can't reveal his identity or he faces being arrested. The book takes knighthood and glamorizes it but at the same time talks about the differences in social status. It is a great historical novel as well as a love story.
