The Knight is one of the few pilgrims who provide no personal Prologue
. Why do you suppose that is?
- The tale of the Knight follows straight on from the General Prologue. Many of the pilgrims use their personal Prologues to pass comment on the tales that precede their own, but there is no tale before the Knight’s. Furthermore, the Knight is presented as an intelligent, but calm and reserved man. He is not the type to talk at length about himself, as some of the others do in their Prologues.
