He soon meets a three-headed giant who bids him depart this part of the forest because it was the  kingdom of the Elf Queen. The giant threatens death, and the knight accepts the challenge and rides  home to ready himself for the battle. At his father's castle, Sir Topas feasts elegantly and prepares  for the battle with the finest armor and excellent weapons. Here, the Host interrupts Chaucer, crying "For God's sake, no more of this . . . I'm exhausted by your  illiterate rhymes." ("Namoore of this, for Goddes dignitee . . . for thou makest me/ So wery of thy  verry lewednesse . . . .") He then asks Chaucer to leave off the rhymes and tell something in prose.  Chaucer agrees to tell a little ("litel") thing in prose but warns that he might repeat some of the  proverbs that the pilgrims have heard before.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
