In which I'm proved wrong

Last year, in American Literature (11th grade English), I thought there was nothing more obtuse and ridiculous than Puritan writings. Denser than Dickens and crazier than Timecube.

I was wrong. Oh boy, was I wrong. Those wacky Puritans had nothing on medieval writers. Geoffrey Chaucer is downright ridiculous; never before or sense has anyone said so little in so many fancy words. "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" is not much better.
