1909. This prologue and tale-which is not Chaucer's, appear only in the Duke of Northumberland's manuscript of the Canterbury Tales. The prologue is of particular interest because we see the pilgrims arrive in Canterbury. A short period of time is spent in the cathedral, then after dinner, when they agree each to tell a tale on the return trip, they all go out to amuse themselves. The Knight takes the Squire to see the city's battlements; the Prioress and Wife walk through gardens; the Monk invites the Parson and Friar to visit a friend of his; the Miller and Summoner (having stole broaches) plan on drinking; others go wandering about the city. The Pardoner plans to seduce a tapster, and his misadventures are the main subject of the Prologue. The next morning (the Pardoner all bruised) the pilgrims leave Canterbury and the Merchant tells the Tale of Beryn. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
