Join the Canton of Whyt Whey with Aurelia di Giovanni Bedici of the Crown Province of Østgarðr right here in the East Kingdom for a special multi-kingdom event!
Join us for a two-part adventure with Chaucer! Aurelia di Giovanni Bedici will introduce us to concepts in 14th C. English law, followed by a dramatic reading of The Physician’s Tale from the Canterbury Tales!
This will allow us to engage with the incredible amount of 14th C. law embedded in the tale, as Chaucer makes use of a lot of coded language and euphemisms that would have been readily understood by his contemporaries but require more explanation for a modern audience, as the law has changed significantly in the intervening period.
Reading the tale in advance is encouraged! https://chaucer.fas.harvard.edu/pages/physicians-tale-0
Our readers are:
Susan of Etherstone, MKA Sue Lewis, of the Midrealm
Baroness Helouys le Poer, of Lochac
Catelin Straquhin, MKA Catherine Strachan, of the East Kingdom
Verenne de Forêt, MKA Victoria Larkin, of the East Kingdom
Lady Bethoc the Unhomed, MKA Carol Eileen Rouhani, of the West Kingdom
