Paraphrase each of the following characters in The General Prologue (pages 144-167). 


The Knight, The Squire, The Yeoman, The Nun, The Monk, The Friar, The Oxford Cleric, The Doctor, The Wife of Bath, The Parson, The Plowman, The Miller,  The Summoner, and The Pardoner.


"Reading medieval texts, such as The Canterbury Tales, can be challenging because they often contain unfamiliar words and complex sentences. One way that you can make sense of Chaucer’s work is to paraphrase, or restate information in your own words. A paraphrase is usually the same length as the original text but contains simpler language...."



It is recommended that you consult outside sources to supplement class discussion on each character; but, do not copy and paste information obtained from such websites.Only use that information to further your understanding of the character.

This writing assignment will be counted as an essay grade and should be typed and turned in on time. Please do not submit by mail. (The PDF has been posted previously.)
