The Image of the Clergy in Geoffrey Chaucer's "Cantenbury Tales"
Philology
(Bachelor’s programme)
7
2017
Chaucer, having a unique status of the father of the English literature, was discussed by a particular number of English and Russian scholars. The theme which will be discussed in this paper is the image of the clergy in his “Cantenbury tales”. The representatives of the clergy were studied as characters of Chaucer’s work, but they were never compared with each other and considered within the general historical context of the epoch. Nevertheless, the studying of this kind may be particularly important for th understanding of Chaucer’s “Cantenbury Tales”, that is why this paper will be dedicated to the comparison of the clergy in “The Cantenbury Tales” with each other.
