In the ˇ§General Prologueˇ¨, Chaucer portrays the pilgrims who are forwarding to Canterbury. Those pilgrims come from varies kind of professions, and also come from all kinds of social status, such as the nobles, the clergy, merchant, and plowman. By this arrangement, Chaucer let the readers see the characteristics of every character from all levels in the society and portrays a vivid image of the society at that time. It is interesting to read ˇ§The General Prologue,ˇ¨ because it is actually a microcosm of the whole society. Through the portraits of the characters, social deficiencies and human weakness are presented in this micro- society.
