Extremely interesting book. Among many other interesting things, Kantor says the Middle Ages were not the “dark ages” as most of us believe, but one only needs to read Chaucer to change one’s mind. I remember a high school teacher stating something to that effect. This is a very important book for people who enjoy reading—good literature, that is—and want to break free from the tyranny of school/college cliché curricula. NOTICE: Attempts to censor (“Report this”) my comments will be fiercely fought under the aegis of American Libraries’ beloved principles: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Read, Intellectual Freedom.
