    • Abstract:
      The article sheds light on the English poet Geoffrey Chaucer, and the prologue to the book The Canterbury Tales. Chaucer launched the Prologue to The Canterbury Tales with a reverdie or spring song. This served to funnel in a host of influences, some of which he may have consciously reworked, while others he might have admitted unconsciously, so to speak, as part of the reverdie's generic baggage. The article exposes how difficult it is to disengage the various skeins from a plait as densely woven from commonplace.
