I just read the 1st chapter of Last of the Mohicans. The style is a bit stilted and the sentences are long but the outdated phrase construction you can easily make out from context.

Not anywhere near as challenging as The Canterbury Tales or Beowulf

I tried Last of the Mohicans too, and the language is not so difficult for me to read and understand.

But then I am a multi-talented person. ;)

Go Gutenberg, go.

Just saw the picture on Facebook yesterday but Lee Marvin and his horse leaning up against that wall asleep in Cat Ballou always makes me laugh. Didn't realize he won an Oscar for that role
