Character Explanations of the Canterbury Tales
The Nun, the Monk, and the Parson.
All three of these people share similar interests, the most prominent of which is their devotion to God. I figured that if these people had similar ideas, then they would be less likely to get into an argument, or even worse, a fight. I am sitting people in groups of three, so I call this group the ‘pious’ group. This group is flanked by the group of the Friar, Cook, and Franklin, for they seem very congenial, and the group of the Merchant, Oxford-Cleric, and Sergeant at Law.

The Merchant could convey his idea of the sea-police to the others and see what they think of it, and if it is good, it may be imposed by the Sergeant. This group is seated next to the ‘pious’ group and the group of the Knight, Yeoman, and Squire.
The Knight, Yeoman, and Squire.
This group is already acquainted with one another. The Squire is the son of the Knight, and the Yeoman is the Knights...
