Satirical aspects found in Chaucer’s characters or tales.


After reading the assigned literature and this week’s online learning resources, develop a main thread that addresses any two of the following prompts:

Identify some satirical aspects found in Chaucer’s characters or tales.
Discuss the concept of “courtly love” and how it is epitomized and/or critiqued in Chaucer’s work.
Out of the stories you read, what character left the biggest impression on you? Briefly describe that character and their significance to their tale, or the work as a whole.
How do any of these tales, and/or the Canterbury Tales as a whole, compare to anything we’ve read in weeks 1-6? Think about this in terms of style, tone, structure, characters, or theme.
