Summary and Analysis The Franklin's Prologue and Tale Summary. The Franklin interrupts the Squire's tale in order to compliment him on his eloquence, gentility, and courtesy. He compares the squire to his own son, who spends his time in reckless gambling with worthless youths. The Host is not interested and tells the Franklin to get on with his tale, which he does. I am always in awe at the vexed scene of emotional endurance and social pressure that Chaucer invokes in this early part of The Franklin’s Tale. Our overall point is that Chaucer allows us, simultaneously, to trace not only the dominant patterns governing how Dorigen experiences and performs emotion, but also the ways in which those performances break down, failing to register clearly to her friends (and . While the Franklin claims in his prologue that his story is in the form of a Breton lai, it is actually based on two closely related tales by the Italian poet and author Boccaccio. These appear in Book 4 of Il Filocolo, , and as the 5th tale on the 10th day of the Decameron. In both stories, a young knight is in love with a lady married to another knight.

"The Franklin's Tale" (Middle English: "The Frankeleyns Tale") is a short story in verse from The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer. The story's narrator is a wealthy landowner.
