Title : Cathedral, Inn, and Pardoner in the "Prologue to the Tale of Beryn" [The anonymous author of a fifteenth-century continuation of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales adopts Chaucerian style, irony, and bawdy subject matter in his story of the Pardoner's adventures in a tavern. The narrative develops the rivalries between Chaucer's pilgrims and introduces a new female character Kitt the Tapster, who is partially modeled after the Wife of Bath. The comic and sinful world of the Inn is a carnivalesque parody of courtly love and other elements of high culture embodied by the Cathedral. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
