How to type lines from the canterbury tales in an essay
The Canterbury Tales, written by Chaucer, and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, written by an anonymous author, are both sophisticated fourteenth-century examples of medieval romance. Medieval romances captured the heart of their audiences as narratives and stories that featured a protagonist, often a knight, and dealt with religious allegories, chivalry, courtly love, and heroic epics. The concept of the knight emerged from the remnants of the Anglo-saxon literature and ideals and influence of the. While these ideals were prevalent in medieval society, they still existed with much controversy.
If you are quoting a poem translated into prose, cite line numbers if possible; otherwise cite page numbers. If you are citing The Canterbury Tales from The Riverside Chaucer, you may replace the name of the tale with the fragment number. When citing poetry indicate the line breaks you find in the edition you are quoting from. Do not cite the text as continuous prose.
Different style sheets MLA, Chicago, etc. Normally I am tolerant of variations, but many students do not seem aware of some features shared by all for quoting poetry. Please follow the guidelines below and your other professors will appreciate it if you do this in other classes. Cite page numbers for prose and line numbers for poetry.
As every character in these stories, respect is an important part of these situations. An important character that fulfills this quality is the Knight. He is a chivalrous man, which is very generous, respectful as I said and will always speak with the truth.
