From the Paper:"Literature Studies: A Summary of "The Miller's Tale" by Geoffrey Chaucer "The Miller's Tale" begins with the description of the Miller's (Old John) profession of carpentry, which plays a role in how Chaucer describes his place in society. He is wealthy and of old age. He has taken the young lady, Alison, as his wife. The Miller also runs a boarding house of sorts, and a young man named Nicholas is staying with him. He is an astrologer, but is also called "Fly Nicholas" because he is sexually promiscuous. When the Miller decides to leave town for a business trip, it is Nicholas that seduces Alison to renounce her marital fidelity. The next stage of the tale has Old John returning home, but only after Alison has met Absalon, a young clerk at the local parish. Alison finds Absalon attractive, but remains loyal to her husband."
