Prudence holds center stage in this highly moralized tale in which she corrects her impetuous husband Melibee. Biblical, classical, and medieval moralists are cited in this dialogue between husband and wife, showing Chaucer's use of his source for the tale as well as his much wider reading of such moralized tales almost suited for preaching/reflection. This recording in Boulder, Colorado was directed by Professor Tom Burton, founding director of The Chaucer Studio. Edited by Troy Sales and Paul Thomas.

Recorded at Boulder, Colorado in association with the 13th International Congress of the New Chaucer Society. 2002
Readers: Andrew Lynch (Chaucer), Susan F. Yager (Prudence),D.Thomas Hanks Jr. (Melibee),Tom Burton (Other voices).
