High School Teacher
The Canterbury Tales is an unfinished work. Because it is unfinished, there is difficulty in analyzing or approaching this work as a whole. Since Chaucer wrote each "chapter" focused on a different pilgrim, it is easy to look at the Tales as a collection of short stories. The subtitles refer to the individual stories within the collection.
