The Canterbury Tales, Chaucer and Sting:do you have any idea why this combination is possible?

I was reading again about this great giant in English Literature and Language: Geoffrey Chaucer!

It is amazing how challenging his Tales are! I strongly recommend you to imagine the context of that time… and to think about nowadays society, too.

Can you even think about how society has changed? How many professions are nowadays disappeared and new ones are competing the job world?

Are still social classes in conflict?

While you are doing this thinking brainstorm, I share this link with you: STING.

Happy weekend and Happy storytelling!
