Imagery Examples in The Canterbury Tales:
The Nun’s Priest’s Tale
"Regal..." See in text (The Nun’s Priest’s Tale)
The Nun's Priest again juxtaposes the image of Chanticleer the rooster to "clucks" over some corn in the yard, and Chanticleer the "regal" who discusses dream theories and grapples with philosophy. This imagery creates a comedic effect.
