If you've ever taken English literature, you'll know how excruciating it can be to read Olde English classics. Reading Milton's Paradise Lost was only slightly more fun than tuberculosis. And I'd rather have my nipples twisted off with a monkey wrench that have to read Chaucer again.
But maybe I was going about it all wrong. I apparently needed Baba Brinkman, a self-described"geek rapper" from Canada who has this thing about combining hip-hop with literature and science. Not only has he already taken on Darwin's Origin of the Species but he's now decided to tackle the dreaded The Canterbury Tales.
