The Canterbury Tales: General Prologue & Frame Story
A bettre felawe sholde men noght finde:
He wolde suffre, for a quart of wyn,
A good felawe to have his concubyn
A twelf-month and excuse him atte fulle.
(General Prologue 648 – 651)
With him ther rood a gentil Pardoner
of Rouncival, his freend and his compeer.
(General Prologue 669 – 670)
For by my trouthe, if that I shal nat lye,
I saugh nat this yeer so mery a compaignye
Atones in this herberwe as is now.
Fayn wolde I doon yow mirthe, wiste I how.
(General Prologue 763 – 766)
