General Prologue

Several pilgrims of various social and ethical standing are on their way to Canterbury to visit the cathedral there.  They stay a night in an Inn, and the next day, the Innkeeper offers to join the group on the trip, and judge stories that they will tell to pass the time.  The person with the best story wins a free dinner paid by the other pilgrims.  The knight tells the first story.
