Let's Do It In High Roman Style

Let's Do It In High Roman Style

The word 'future' appears for only the second time in English in Troilus and Criseyde.*

Interested?

Me: Oh, yes. How exciting is that? Chaucer gave English a future. Literally.

You: Er, what?

I think this may well be blog suicide.

*It appears for the first in Chaucer's Boece.
