I'm supposed to memorize the first 18 lines of the Canterbury Tales Prologue, but I SUCK AT THIS!!!

Why do teachers insist on feeding me my weaknesses at the consequence of a failed grade? Dammitshitfuck!

TL;DR I miss Co-Phantom's random input on Forums. They made me laugh. :I

18 lines isn't so bad, I guess. :hmm:

I remember I had to remember all of my Latin. I didn't have to, but the exam was about translating it, so it was better if you remembered.

Looking back, I wonder how I ever got the brain power for that because I can't remember shit any more. :lol:

That's not that much. Just sing it to the tune of So Call Me Maybe. You won't be able to get it out of your head.

Good luck with memorizing those lines. If you memorize songs well make it into just that, a song.

You should yell the lines out really loud, that way you can remember them from how stupid it sounded to yell them. :dummy:

Your teacher may skip it because of its *ahem* R-rated nature. My teacher actually had us read it and went over it in class :o

Honors British Literature, Senior Year of High School.

My teacher's reason for this is, and I quote:

"I had to do it, and I hated it, so you guys have to do it too."

The Canterbury Tales are in Middle English, not Old English. Old English looks like this:

HWT, WE GAR-DEna in geardagum,
eodcyninga rym gefrunon,
hu a elingas ellen fremedon!
oft Scyld Scefing sceaena reatum,
monegum mgum meodosetla ofteah,

We had a choice, but we have to remember more lines if we do it in regular English. I'm used to singing in other languages anyways.

Holy sheeit. I think I could do that once in the 7th grade, but my brain has degenerated since then. All I can remember is random quips that I hear from my friends and GTA cheat codes. :P

I'm not. If you break down the lines and take small notes of each lines, it gets more clear.
