I've read portions in the original Middle English with little training. It's not hard if there are footnotes and you sound out the words (as the spellings are unorthodox by modern standards). I think the article should maybe be changed, as it currently says that it's always read in translation.
- Change it, then, but do so cautiously. I was shocked to see a display of books at the local Barnes and Noble which were translations of Shakespeare into modern English.. Dpbsmith 21:53, 4 March 2007 (EST)
If the "Mad Max" films have to be dubbed into American English what can we expect? People of all nations don't want to have to think any more. AlanE 04:13, 25 May 2007 (EDT)
