Unlock the more straightforward side of The Miller’s Tale with this concise and insightful summary and analysis!

This engaging summary presents an analysis of The Miller’s Tale by Geoffrey Chaucer, a humorous fable from the Canterbury Tales. It is narrated by the eponymous Miller, whose drunkenness leads him to select a bawdier tale to tell his fellow travellers than he perhaps meant to. It tells the story of John the carpenter and his much younger wife Alisoun, who is seduced by the scholar who lodges with the couple. However, John is paranoid that his wife might be cuckolding him, and keeps a careful eye on her, leading the lovers to come up with a truly outlandish scheme to outwit him and steal away to spend the night together. Geoffrey Chaucer was the author of The Canterbury Tales, a collection of stories which is one of the earliest known examples of English-language literature and has been a key influence on subsequent generations of writers.
