The Canterbury Tales: General Prologue & Frame Story The Squire's Introduction Summary

  • The Host asks the Squire to tell a tale about love, for certainly the Squire knows as much about love as any man.
  • The Squire replies that he does not know much about love, but he will tell a tale because he does not wish to rebel against the Host's authority.
