Prioress From The Canterbury Tales
Transcript of Prioress From The Canterbury Tales
Prioress The Nun
Prioress was a head nun for her church.
Name & Other Info
Her real name was Madame Eglantine.
She was a moral character as shown in line 146..
She is the fourth pilgrim to be introduced in Chaucers prologue.
She is upper class. She dresses elegantly and She wore a rosary around her wrist
made out of coral beads all colored green, and from it hung a brooch of golden sheen.
Chaucer's Opinion Of Madame Eglantine
Chaucer describes the nun as a modest, well educated women with good manners and she spoke French well and properly. She also has delicate feelings, and a strong love for God and his creations. The author connects the relationship between how she sang and with her nose. He uses irony when describing her and shows us she doesn't act the way she does because she is obligated to, she acts the way she does because it is important to her to be elegant. This makes some what a mockery of the church because, everything about the Prioress is contradictory, and this is distinctively reconized by the appearance of the Prioress character traits.
