GEOFFREY CHAUCER. 1328 – 1400.
Ed. Tyrwhitt. WHANNE that April with his shoures sote The droughte of March hath perced to the rote
Prologue. Line 1. And smale foules maken melodie, That slepen alle night with open eye, So priketh hem nature in hir corages ; Than longen folk to gon on pilgrimages.
And of his port as meke as is a mayde.
He was a veray parfit gentil knight.
He coude songes make, and wel endite.
Ful wel she sange the service devine,
Entuned in hire nose ful swetely;
And Frenche she spake ful fayre and fetisly,
After the scole of Stratford atte bowe,
For Frenche of Paris was to hire unknowe.
(Canterbury Tales continued. A Clerk ther was of Oxenforde also.
Prologue. Line 287. For him was lever han at his beddes hed A twenty bokes, clothed in black or red, Of Aristotle, and his philosophie, Than robes riche, or fidel, or sautrie. But all be that he was a philosophre, Yet hadde he but litel gold in cofre.
And gladly wolde he lerne, and gladly teche.
Nowher so besy a man as he ther n' as,
And yet he semed besier than he was.
His studie was but litel on, the Bible.
For gold in phisike is a cordial;
Therefore he loved gold in special.
Wide was his parish, and houses fer asоnder.
This noble ensample to his shepe he yaf,
That first he wrought, and afterwards he taught.
Line 498. But Cristes lore, and his apostles twelve, He taught, but first he folwed it himselve.
Line 529. And yet he had a thomb of goid parde.
1 In allusion to the proverb, “Every honest miller has a golden thumb.”
Canterbury Tales continued.]
Who so shall telle a tale after a man,
He moste reherse, as neighe as ever he can,
Everich word, if it be in his charge,
All speke he never so rudely and so large ;
Or elles he moste tellen his tale untrewe,
Or feinen thinges, or finden wordes newe.
Prologue. Line 733.
For May wol have no slogardie a-night.
The seson priketh every gentil herte,
And maketh him out of his slepe to sterte.
The Knightes Tale. Line 1044. Up rose the sonne, and up rose Emelie.
Ibid. Line 2275. To maken vertue of necessite. Ibid. Line 3044. And brought of mighty ale a large quart.
The Milleres Tale. Line 3497. Yet in our ashen cold is fire yreken.
The Reves Prologue. Line 3880. So was hire joly whistle wel ywette.
The Reves Tale. 4153. And for to see, and eek for to be seye.
The Wif of Bathes Prologue. Line 6134. Loke who that is most vertuous alway, Prive and apert, and most entendeth ay To do the gentil dedes that he can, And take him for the gretest gentilman. The Wif of Bathes Tale.
Line 6695. 1 Spectatum veniunt, veniunt spectentur ut ipsae.
Ovid, Art of Love, 1. 99.
