This is a very broad question because "The General Prologue" covers a great deal of information. Chaucer uses the "Prologue" to (1) introduce the narrator, who is acknowledge as Chaucer's own persona; (2) introduce the premise of the tales, which is a joint pilgrimage by separate people or groups to Canterbury; (3) introduce the pilgrims and give usually detailed descriptions of them.
