Thursday, Sept. 29th

We finished off “The Prologue” to The Canterbury Tales, and read “The Pardoner’s Tale” as well.

The PILGRIMS Quiz will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 4th.

Your Hamlet letter is due on Oct. 6th

The Chaucer Assignment is due on Oct. 11th.  For this, you have the option of :

  1.  Creating a “relic” from the pilgrimmage AND writing a 10 line heroic couplet explaining how you obtained the “relic”.

OR

2.  Writing an essay of 500-600 words on one of the following topics.  Use ONLY the text as your source.

a.  What does The Canterbury Tales reveal about CRIME in  Medieval England.

b.  What does The Canterbury Tales reveal about the  ECONOMY in Medieval England.

c.  What does The Canterbury Tales reveal about the CHURCH in Medieval England.

d.  What does The Canterbury Tales reveal about the  GENDER ROLES in Medieval England.

e.  How does the tale told by a pilgrim match the description of the pilgrim in “The Prologue?”

There is one last option about which I shall tell you on Tuesday.
