Love Through the Ages

Welcome to The Literature Stoodle!This Blog has been set up to help you become effective independent learners... and to enjoy the art of blogging. You need to set up your own Blogs to record notes, upload documents, images, videos, music, presentations whatever you like to record and analyse your wider reading. Think of it as a multi-media reading diary. WooHoo!I will upload reading material, videos of lectures to support your wider reading as well as advice from the exam board and help with coursework. I've put a link to amazon with suggestions for wider reading to the right. You can choose anything you like to read provided the subject is 'Love'. Look at the labels to pull up all the posts on specific topics. AND check in regularly.

Some research tasks on Chaucer and the Medieval period

Sorry I couldn't get this on the Blog before. I had a few problems getting the pdf to read properly. Anyway... Pick your area for research:
Courtly Love
Chivalry - The Knight's Code of Conduct
Pilgrimages in Chaucer's time
The role of the Church in Medieval England
E.M. Tillyard "The Elizabethan World Picture" - check out the chapter on 'The Chain of Being'.
There are links to really good websites on the last page. If the links don't work diresctly, copy and paste into your browser.
All the above will be important to your study of 'The Miller's Tale'.
Make brief notes so that you understand the terms.
