Literature is Everywhere

I’m researching my next blog post, and I have The Last Waltz on, when suddenly I’m in junior year of high school again: some dude is standing on stage between sets of The Band’s last concert, reciting the opening stanza of The Canterbury Tales in Middle English. Looks like it wasn’t just ELHS that assigned its students to commit Chaucer’s prologue to memory forever and ever. This man’s English teacher would be proud for spreading the literature love. “Whan that Aprill, with his shoures soote,” indeed.

By the way, this movie is as awesome as I’d heard. Joni secretly singing background vocals on Neil Young’s “Helpless” is my favorite so far.
