This paper uses quotes and examples to summarize "The Miller's Tale" and describe the main characters in the story. The paper points out that "The Miller's Tale" is included simply for entertainment purposes, since we cannot expect much more from a such a rude and obnoxious character as the Miller.

From the Paper:

"Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales is about a group of pilgrims traveling together to Canterbury and along the way tell one another stories to pass the time. They are quite a mix of individuals, from all positions in society, and make quite a group. Each of the pilgrims tells a story or tale that clearly reflects the personality of its teller. "The Miller's Tale" is, of course, told by a Miller. The Miller is a somewhat crude man with a distinctive appearance, personality, and values, and these are evident in his story. "The Miller's Tale" is constructed around cuckoldry and the Miller's attitudes about it."
