    • Abstract:
      The article presents information on the poem "The Parliament of Fowls," by Geoffrey Chaucer. There are certain features, which contribute both to the appeal and to the enigma of "The Parliament of Fowls." One is the compelling sense of unity and harmony in the poem's form; another is its division into obscurely related parts. The division into parts is generally agreed, but how the parts constitute or contribute to the intuitive unity has not been satisfactorily accounted for. The poem, as generally understood, is made up of a series of scenes. These scenes seem to be overlaid by three distinct movements, each heralded by a break in action, tone, and style. Underlying these general movements of the poem there are certain recurrent themes.
