The Canterbury Tales – Mamas and the Papas Version (Plus reading in London Monday 17 November)

by Mark McGuinness on 13 November, 2014

In a parallel universe, the Canterbury Tales were written and performed by the Mamas and the Papas. This video gives us a glimpse of that universe. Beautiful and mad. Courtesy of Lucian James.

If you’re in London next Monday 17th November, you might like to pop along to the Troubadour where I’ll be reading a couple of poems as part of the Poetry School Poets evening.

As well as some other students from the School, tutors Tamar Yoseloff and Mimi Khalvati will be reading. Even if you can’t make the reading, I recommend you get hold of Mimi’s new book The Weather Wheel, and read it all in one go.

Alas, I cannot pop over from Vancouver to hear you read. How I wish I could!

Instead, I have purchased the Kindle version of Mimi’s lovely book on Amazon. I have never before seen the world with such delicately detailed vision. Thanks for the recommendation.

Amazing isn’t it? It’s as though Mimi has a special lens for looking at the world.
