Chaucer's infamous Wife of Bath gets the opportunity to tell her story in this lively audiobook. Fran Burgoyne artfully delivers her performance, tackling the role with high spirits and theatrical verve. Even those unfamiliar with THE CANTERBURY TALES will be engaged by Burgoyne's chipper delivery, lovely accents, and distinctive voices. Never mind that the original tale takes place in the fourteenth century--Burgoyne's performance blends the colorful language of that time with an accessible narration more reminiscent of our time. Beyond that, the story of Eleanor, that good wife of the title, inspires thoughts of women's roles throughout history, and the long roads they have traveled. Eleanor's experiences as presented by Burgoyne are fascinating and transporting. L.B.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
