The Canterbury Tales: General Prologue & Frame Story Epilogue to the Nun's Priest's Tale Summary

  • The Host is delighted by the Nun's Priest's tale about a rooster. If the Nun's Priest were a layman, says the Host, he would certainly be a copulator of many hens.
  • The Host draws the company's attention to the Nun's Priest's ripped body, and wishes the Nun's Priest well because of his good tale.
