I read Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales in Middle English back in University. I remember my face turning red, not understanding most of it...I am always upset when I can't understand something.I was blessed with a couple of friends who helped me through it and I ended up getting a good mark in that English course...but it was tough going for a bit. But their help was key to understanding the beauty of that work.
Ridiculous! How freaking long had that to have taken? I love it: "he had mynyts XV" or sthg like that. Oh man!
