Transcript of Canterbury Tales Nun's Priest Literary Elements

Literary Elements in the
Nun's Priest's Tale By Shilpa Kunnappillil, Srijan Karan, and Kayleigh Vance Chanticleer "In all the land for crowing he'd no peer" (215)
"At each ascent he know by intuition; at every hour - fifteen degrees of movement" (215)
"His comb was redder than fine coral, tall and battlemented like a castle wall. His bill was black and shone bight as jet, like azure were his legs and they were set on azure toes with nails of lily white. Like burnished gold his feathers, flaming bright." (215) Pertelote "She with the loveliest dyes upon her throat" (215)
"Courteous was she, discreet and debonair, companionable too" (216)
"She held the heart of Chanticleer controlled" (216) Sir Russel Fox Characters Similes/
Metaphors "His bill was black and shone as bright as jet" (215)
"His voice was jollier than the organ blowing in church on Sundays" (215)
"Grim as a lion's was his manly frown as on his toes as he sauntered up and down...thus royal as a prince who strides his hall" (224)
"My story is as true, I undertake, as that of good Sir Lancelot du Lake who held all women in such high esteem" (225)
"Chanticleer sang free, more merrily than a mermaid in the sea" (226)
"You have as merry a voice as God has give to any angel in the courts of Heaven" (227)
"Sure never such a cry or lamentation was made by ladies of high Trojan station when Ilium fell...as what was uttered by those hens" (228)
Imagery The Old Woman's Cottage "There dwelt a poor old widow in a small cottage, by a little meadow, beside a grove and standing in a dale...She kept herself and her two daughters going. Three hefty sows...three cows as well; there was a sheep called Molly" (214)
"She had a yard that was enclosed about by a stockade and a dry ditch without, in which she kept a cock called Chanticleer" (215) Allusions Cato Pertelote says, "Take Cato now, that was so wise a man, did he not say 'Take not account of dreams"? St. Kenelm Chanticleer says, "Now, St. Kenelm dreamt a thing shortly before they murdered him one day. He saw his murder in a dream, I say (222) Scipio Africanus Chanticleer says, "Macrobius wrote of dreams and can explain us the vision of young Scipio Africanus, and he affirms that dreams can give a due warning of things that later on come true" (222) Croesus Chanticleer tells Pertelote, "What about Croesus too, the Lydian king, who dreamt that he was sitting in a tree, meaning he would be hanged? It had to be." (223) Joseph Chanticleer says, "Read about Joseph too and you will see that many dreams - I do not say that all - give cognizance of what is to befall" (222) Andromache Chanticleer says "Or take Andromache, great Hector's wife; the day on which he was to lose his life she dreamt about, the very night before, and realized that if Hector went to war he would be lost that very day in battle. She warned him; he dismissed it all as prattle and sallied forth to fight, being self-willed, and there he met Achilles and was killed." (223) Works Cited Chaucer, Geoffrey. The Canterbury Tales. London: Penguin, 2003. Print. Chanticleer recounts, "His colour was a blend of yellow and red, his ears and tail were tipped with sable fur unlike the rest; he was a russet cur. Small was his snout, his eyes were glowing bright" (216) Conflict Do dreams mean anything? Chanticleer: "One never should be careless about dreams, for, undeniably, I say it seems that many are a sign of trouble breeding" (222)
Pertelote: "Dreams are a vanity, god knows, pure error" (217) http://www.nj.gov/dep/fgw/images/wildlife/fox_gl.jpg http://www.hen.com/hen.jpg http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-FilG7fqNqdY/TcaZXgY7tvI/AAAAAAAABh4/n-5kdWTbATM/s1600/rooster+remodel.jpg http://img2-3.timeinc.net/toh/i/g/0307_garden1/cottage-gardens-01.jpg http://www.nndb.com/people/212/000095924/cato-the-elder-1-sized.jpg http://www.livius.org/a/1/anatolia/kroisos_louvre.JPG http://www.thelatinlibrary.com/imperialism/images/scipio.jpg http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/6e/Andromache_mourns_Hector.jpg/200px-Andromache_mourns_Hector.jpg
