It is quite clear that Chaucer represents his age.His fables render moral lesson.He takes the gene of short stories or he is narrator and applies mild satire.

The Nun's Priest's Tale of Chanticleer the rooster and Sir Russell the fox is a beast fable. Aesop's Fables may be the most famous example of this genre, in which animals behave as though they are humans (personification) and a moral lesson is taught.
