WASHINGTON, DC - Horace Mann High School Teacher, Frank Hamme lastest article, “The Tales of Geoffrey Chaucer: the Carnivorous Transvestite,” was published this week in the prestigious American Public School Journal for the Affirmation of Pedagogic Integrity with rave reviews
In his article, the respected high school teacher answered an important question that pestered scholars for decades: “Was the Prioress in the Canterbury Tales really Chaucer in drag?” In Hamme's article, the learned English teacher confirms that Chaucer was a transvestite sexist who created the Prioress in his own image.
"As every straights knows,” Hamme told reporters, “no woman could ever be as feminine and desirable as the Prioress. It takes a man to define a real woman, and Chaucer proves this point by creating the Prioress, the prototype of all women, in his own image.”
Hamme who will be receiving the Teacher of the Year Award next week based his Chaucerian research on material he uncovered in the archives of a local adult bookstore. The editors of the American Public School Journal believe the article, which took over three years to write, will change the way students read the classics.
Frank Hamme is a fictitious characters in Joe David’s outrageously funny book and play, Teacher of the Year. Reviewers have referred to the book as “unique fun, startling” (Jennifer Stephens, WXCD-FM); “a good read” (Bob Madigan, WTOP-Washington); “a madcap, often twistedly comic satire” (Sam Weller, New City Newspaper, Chicago); and “wonderfully humorous...with serious messages about teaching and education” (Mike Bowler, Baltimore Sun).
