Zombies and Chaucer

November 10, 2010

Seriously, it does not get any better than this! Literary mashups gone classic.

The Aeneid and Zombyes

In thys newe kynde of booke, the writere taketh the weightie werke of an auncient auctor of much renowne (or paraventure a well-knowene romaunce) and mixeth yt wyth whimsical tales of the supernatural. Methinketh that swich a combinacioun shal be lyk unto cat-nippe for the loveres of bookes, and shal climbe the bestsellere listes lyk Lancelot into Gueneveres roome. Ywis, paraventure thei may even selle moore copyes than The Mayde Y-Marked wyth Woad in the Shape of a Wyrm and its sequel The Mayde Who Kikked at the Apiary.

Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog is funny, even if you were not an English major. (If you were a social science major like me, it may take a little double-take or two to get your head around translating the Middle English cleverness so there is a bit of a time delay on laughing yourself most silly.)
