Question and answer
Discuss the setting Chaucer establishes in "The Prologue." Points to consider include the time and place, the purpose of the journey, and the people going on the journey. Also, identify any parts of the setting that hint at action that happens later in the story. Cite specific examples from the text to support your answer.
In Greek tragedy, the prologue is the opening section of a drama that precedes the first choral ode. [ In the play Oedipus Rex by Sophocles, the prologue is presented as dialogue between Oedipus, the Priests, and Kreon, and establishes that the plague in Thebes will end as soon as Laios’s murderer is found. This precedes the opening hymn of the Chorus that appeals to the gods. Shakespeare
includes a prologue to set up the story behind the star crossed lovers in Romeo and Juliet. In this case, the Chorus delivers the prologue which begins, “Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life” ]
