The Canterbury Tales: General Prologue & Frame Story
Over al ther [the Miller] cam
At wrastlyng he wolde have alwey the ram.
(General Prologue 549 – 550)
And which of yow that bereth him best of alle,
That is to seyn, that telleth in this cas
tales of best sentence and most solas,
shal have a soper at oure aller cost.
(General Prologue 798 – 801)
Men shal nat maken ernest of game.
(Miller's Prologue 78)
