Courtly Love In Chaucer
Courtly Love in Chaucer Courtly Love in Chaucer In the Franklin's Tale, Geoffrey Chaucer satirically paints a picture of a marriage steeped in the tradition of courtly love.

Marriage becomes a pretense to maintain courtly position because love provides the opportunity to demonstrate virtue. Like true m...
