Jalous he was, and heeld hire narwe in cage," — MilT "Deze timmerman had pas een nieuwe vrouw, die hij meer liefhad dan zijn eigen leven; Ze was achttien jaar oud, en jaloers als hij was, hield hij haar gevangen in een kooi," Het verhaal gaat over een jonge molenaarsleerling Nicholas die de jonge vrouw Alison van zijn oude baas John het bed in wil krijgen.
Die grote verscheidenheid aan personages en verhalen zorgt ervoor dat The Canterbury Tales als geheel niet tot een algemene waarheid of realiteit komt. People knew that the Pope was a part of the system; but the system was so solid and universal that they hardly thought that anything was needed to be the protector of the system.
She willingly goes to bed with Nicholas, but she has only harsh words and obscenities for Absolon. Chaucer first appears in the records inas a member of the household of Elizabeth, countess of Ulster, wife of Lionel, third son of Edward III.
And we must anticipate, in the future, many pathetic attempts of Europe to be centralized without a centre. The Renaissance exalted the Poet, but even more it exalted the Prince; it was not primarily thinking about the Peasant.

Eventually, Chanticleer outwits the fox by encouraging him to boast of his deceit to his pursuers. He was able to shape their speech and satirise their manners in what was to become popular literature among people of the same types.
They were only expert—and vulgar. Op zoek naar een nieuw medium voor zijn artistieke expressie, besluit Matt om zich te vermommen als priester en de biecht van de pelgrims te aanhoren, video- en audiotapes van hen te maken om die in performance art te verwerken.

As "Chaucerian" works that were not considered apocryphal until the late 19th century, these medieval texts enjoyed a new life, with English Protestants carrying on the earlier Lollard project of appropriating existing texts and authors who seemed sympathetic—or malleable enough to be construed as sympathetic—to their cause.
