Abstract

In both tales, Nun's Priest's Tale and in the Clerk's Tale, it is shown how Chaucer uses the principle of contrast - in terms of settings, characters, styles, and imagery - to achieve his artistic ends. This paper demonstrates the various ways in which Chaucer uses the minor theme of poverty in his works.
