Geoffrey Chaucer, according to the most trustworthy traditions- for authentic testimonies on the subject are .

Taking the stage after the Knight and his lofty tale of courtly love, the drunken miller regales the pilgrims with the account of a young scholar, Nicholas, who persuades his aged landlord’s beautiful young wife to go to bed with him. Having successfully duped the husband and made his conquest, he finds himself the butt of his own practical joke played on a rival suitor, in the process giving rise to a famously farcical end sequence.

The woods of Arcady are dead, and the Austin hippie scene is near on half a century ago, but this "rendering new" of Chaucer's ribald Miller's Tale, illustrated by Gilbert ("Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers") Shelton and freely translated from the Middle English by Lieuen Adkins (parallel original and translation) is as funny as ever. It ought to still be in print but it isn't, though old copies abound online. Adkins was something of a ne'er-do-well who died young, after doing one other Chaucer rendering, the Wife of Bath's Tale, with a different illustrator. Sometimes Adkins improves the original:

Derk was the night as pich, or as the cole,
And at the window out she put hir hole.

The night showed not a star, but pretty soon
Fair Alison gave Absolon the moon.

I'd recommend it for lovers of Chaucer who know when not to take him too seriously, for translators of poetry, and of course for fans of Gilbert Shelton and the 1960s underground comic book scene. Wonder Warthog and Fat Freddy's Cat live!

When I first got this, I loved it. Chaucer translated into Hippie, with illustrations by Gilbert Shelton - a match made somewhere, though I suspect it was not in Heaven. Some years ago, I gave a copy to a friend. an occasional actress at the Guthrie Theater, and SHE loved it. (She's a literary woman. Has something like two dozen Medieval mysteries available on Amazon. Her judgement is good.) This copy is destined for a medievalist friend, who's quite hard to buy presents for. It'll be interesting to see what he thinks of it.

Had never read this classic. It wasn't allowed 'back then' for young people to read stories like that. Then watching The Big Bang Theory on TV one night it was mentioned and the thought came to me that I should read it now that I'm an adult and allowed to read such things (I'm in my 60s). Oh my goodness - what a story. I blushed even though I was all by myself. Quite ribald, earthy and at the same time hilarious. Great story. Rather like you would expect a tavern joke to go - if told in Old English.
