My class is reading from the Canterbury Tales from the prologue. I have to read the Manciple part. Our teacher wants us to write a paragraph about our character. I'm not sure what she's askiing for. I guess I have to research the manciples appearance, personality, and his ranking. If anyone can help, or has tips, or knows a website that can be helpful, please feel free to share. Thanks.
This webpage is in frames. Use the far left frame and scroll down to find the Manciple's Prologue and Tale. There is side-by-side text there, original and modern. This makes it easier to read and understand.
Again, use the far left frame and scroll down to Fragment IX. When you click on the Manciple's Tale, you'll see that links appear in the large frame; these links are to analysis and writings about this particular tale.
Explore this site, too, including the link that says Geoffrey Chaucer and Essays and Articles.
And these may come in handy, too:
