The author, Kathleen Forni, refers in some detail to my book on pages 38-39, an excerpt of which is below:
A topical political critique of institutional religion, colonial imperialism, and social injustice is also found in Paul A. Freeman’s Robin Hood and Friar Tuck: Zombie Killers—A Canterbury Tale, in which the Greenwood gang has an adventure with the undead.[i] Framing his gory thriller as the “Monk’s Second Tale,” Freeman’s nocturnal narrative is told not for sentence or solace but to “terrify and make the blood run cold” (1).
The blurb to Dr Forni's book says in part: "This study explores Chaucer's present-day cultural reputation by way of popular culture. In just the past two decades his texts have been adapted to a wide variety of popular genres, including television, stage, comic book, hip-hop, science fiction, horror, romance, and crime fiction... (T)he fact that Chaucer has a popular afterlife, and remains an ideological product over which competing groups lay claim, attests to his current cultural vitality."
It just goes to show that just like Shakespeare, Chaucer's work is still relevant today.
