Additional Information:
This volume is a retelling of the Franklin's Tale primarily through photographs.  The text appears in one or two short lines on each page, and the majority of the page is a photo collage, often made up of disjointed facial features.  (One page, for example, features three images of Dorigen's lips, each image separated from the others by a white border.)  Several pages feature a landscape image;  there is a full-page image of the coastline, for example, and the tale ends with a pink and orange sunset.  This modernization is a unique reimagining of the Franklin's narrative.
