Frank Mundo is a poet and writer from Los Angeles, and author of four books: The Brubury Tales, a modern version of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales in Los Angeles, written entirely in rhyming verse; Gary, The Four-Eyed Fairy and Other Stories, a collection of Frank's best connected short stories published in magazines and journals over the years; and Different, a contemporary fantasy short novel (illustrated by Keith Draws) that satirizes political correctness, microaggressions, safe spaces and other made up silliness by re-imagining Kafka's Metamorphosis and Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. Frank's new poetry chapbook, Touched by an Anglo, was just released from Kattywompus Press on July 19, 2017.

“The lyf so short, the craft so long to lerne.”
Geoffrey Chaucer, The Parliament of Birds

Geoffrey Chaucer
“What is better than wisdom? Woman. And what is better than a good woman? Nothing.”
Geoffrey Chaucer

Geoffrey Chaucer
“Purity in body and heart
May please some--as for me, I make no boast.
For, as you know, no master of a household
Has all of his utensils made of gold;
Some are wood, and yet they are of use.”
Geoffrey Chaucer, The Canterbury Tales

Geoffrey Chaucer
“Then you compared a woman's love to Hell,
To barren land where water will not dwell,
And you compared it to a quenchless fire,
The more it burns the more is its desire
To burn up everything that burnt can be.
You say that just as worms destroy a tree
A wife destroys her husband and contrives,
As husbands know, the ruin of their lives. ”
Geoffrey Chaucer, The Canterbury Tales

Geoffrey Chaucer
“Ful wys is he that kan himselve knowe.”
Geoffrey Chaucer, The Riverside Chaucer
