At 9:33 p.m., the night of Buck’s disappearance, Judge Miller came in the two-stories mansion, to the living room to read the today’s newspaper. He noticed there was something not thats right in his mansion, but there was a missing dog, which is Buck. Judge Miller looked everywhere in his mansion and his woody property. Toots and Ysabel were still in the kitchen, the maids were sweeping the the black and white pattern tiles in the the same room with them. Judge Miller asked the maids where is Buck and they did not answer. He quickly grab the Bell telephone on the tan kitchen wall to call the police to come his mansion.
Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales contains two comparable tales; “The Knights Tale” and “The Miller’s Tale.” These two tales show contradicting realities of love while exploring how to win someone over. Both stories display more than one man trying to win the attention of a woman.
In Chaucer’s Knight’s Tale, Chaucer uses several different sins to develop the characters throughout the tale in order to portray the moral of the tale. Throughout the tale Chaucer provides the reader with the main motifs which are Anger and Pride. These two sins help provide with the characteristics of Palamoun and Arcite.
The Reeve that is described in the general prologue of the Canterbury Tales, written by Geoffrey Chaucer, seems to accurately represent the person that is narrating the Reeve’s Tale. In story, the Reeve creates a journey which began as a trip that was meant to benefit people, but ended up having selfish gain. Due to this, there is a bit of back-and-forth between what the narrator said about the Reeve in the general prologue versus his personality that was prevalent while he narrated his tale.
The representation of women as idealized objects of desire in “The Miller’s Tale” and “The Reeve’s Tale” by Geoffrey Chaucer functions as a way to present the value of women as seen by men. In particular, throughout “The Miller’s Tale,” Alisoun confirms the traditional stereotype of women as being lustful and desirous creatures as well as cheaters. This is identified when she tricks her husband in order to share a night of passion with another man in their bed. It is also represented in the comparison of Alisoun to animals and their actions, which suggests that women are animalistic in their search and need for sexual activity.
In The Miller’s Tale, a chapter in The Canterbury Tales, by Geoffrey Chaucer, women are dependent on men, and described as weak, and submissive. As a result, Chaucer portrays women as mere objects that can be possessed.
The author Geoffrey Chaucer wrote the book “The Canterbury Tale” and also added several stories. I chose to write about. “The Knight’s Tale” and “The Miller’s Tale”, because both of them are so equally different, but have some similarities for example, in “The Knight’s Tale” talks about the knight’s and how they are so respected and honorable man’s. “The Miller’s Tale” is about a love triangle that involves one woman and three men and how the miller is not a respected man and doesn’t keep his promises.
In The Canterbury Tales, Chaucer creates a mixture of unlikely yet interesting characters that find themselves on a pilgrimage to Canterbury. Chaucer describes these characters in remarkable detail. This allows the reader to bring the characters to life, giving them a more vivid understanding of what kind of people they really were. The Miller is one of the most vivid characters that were encountered in the story. It is clear Chaucer doesn’t approve of the Miller because he describes him as a cheat and a somewhat of a thug.
The Knight and Miller tale have similar characters which play very similar roles but with totally different personalities. The Knight's Tale is told by a famous person, and it is an historical romance which barely escapes a extremely sad ending (involves death or suffering). The Miller's Tale has a plot, but not themes. The Miller’s Tale is seen as a lower class point of view and it turns the knight’s idea of courtly love into a shorter, disgusting farce.
In the story of The Miller’s Tale, Nicholas, the clerk, uses the story of the Noah’s flood from the old testament of the bible as a deception and to manipulate the carpenter, John. John, without a doubt in his head, immediately believed Nicholas’ “vision” and followed all of his instructions. This means that many people are easy to manipulate or deceive just by using a statement or a story from a religious source in the middle ages. Furthermore, Nicholas also warns John that once they were inside the tubs, they must do nothing and not speak a word but only pray because it is “God’s commandment”. Nicholas also added that John and Alison should be on different tubs because it is a “sin” for them to be on the same tubs. In this statement, Nicholas
Despite the differences these poems have, both show life lessons. The lesson is lying can have grave consequences. In The Friar’s Tale, the main person goes to hell because of his dishonesty. Most people who believe in heaven and hell do not want to go to hell, therefore, The Friar’s Tale shows the consequence of lying is a sure way to be banished to hell (Chaucer). In The Prioress’s Tale, the people who lied were executed by hanging.
The Miller’s Tale from Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales illustrates Alisoun, the sole female character of the tale, through comparisons of animals and natural life. There are implications throughout the tale that implicate that Chaucer was intending to represent the character’s sexual liberation as something that is innately possible in all women. In this essay, we will explore the ways in which the narrative structures Alisoun’s feminity, othering her from her male-counterparts in the tale. Through literary analysis of the tale and consideration from contemporary scholars, I will present the argument that Chaucer depicted Alisoun’s character in such a manner to display how
Through The Canterbury Tales, Chaucer shows how love is portrayed in a completely different light based on whether you are a part of the lower or upper class. Through his descriptions of Emily in “The Knight’s Tale” and Alison in “The Miller’s Tale”, Chaucer envisions woman as the source of two different types of love based on the social class she belongs to. The upper class version of love would be presented as something noble in the way the male goes about trying to earn the woman’s love. In the upper class version love it takes far more of an effort to win the girl over and it must be done in a polite/kind manner. The lower class type of love contains far more primal tactics, in which the male does not have to try very hard to have the woman leave behind her current partner for the new male. The way that the lower class thinks somewhat resembles the attitude which animals have towards their partners, in that the woman would
The Miller chooses to satirize the Knight’s tale in order to expose how the upper class glorifies courtly love and often tells tales unrealistically. In the Knight’s tale, Arcite and Palamon, two men who claim to be in love with Emily, bicker over who should be able to marry her. Initially, Palamon states, “‘The fairness of that lady that I see / In yonder garden, roaming to and fro, / Is cause of all my crying and my woe’” (1098-1100). Palamon confesses his love for Emily to Arcite and is depressed since he believes that he will never have the chance to be with her, as he is currently imprisoned in a guarded tower. Immediately after Palamon states that he is in love with Emily,
Which story is more entertaining and has better morals? The Canterbury Tales, composed of 22 different stories and written by a man named Geoffrey Chaucer, are very complex and meaningful stories that are applicable to real life scenarios and have deep hidden morals that should be things that humans follow. Two of the most known tales across the globe in the Canterbury Tales are “The Pardoner’s Tale,” and “The Wife of Bath.” These two tales have many similarities but both provide different elements to make them arguable. “The Wife of Bath” tale is the better story because it contains fantastical elements, builds more suspense, has a more complex plot, and contains more morals.
