*What are the human flaws exhibited by Lady Pertelote, Chanticleer, and Sir Russell Fox in “The Nun’s Priest’s Tale”? Can you find examples of these flaws among modern figures today? *”The Pardoner’s Tale” exemplifies the consequences of greed. It is told by an amoral figure of the Church. Can you find a modern work of film or literature, or a story in the media that is similar? Find a modern moral tale about greed and draw comparisons. *The devices of humor in “The Miller’s Tale” are still fresh and funny to modern readers. Can you find a modern work of literature or film that gives humorous treatment to infidelity, the cuckold, or the Misdirected Kiss? *Compare and contrast a major character from “The Prologue” with a modern character from contemporary literature, film, or the media. *Challenge topic: Read the “Wife of Bath’s Tale” located on Google Classroom (code # wo84z0).
