The Hidden Nature of God

22 Jan 2017

It seems like overall Chaucer is emphasising the different choices each of the different characters in these few parts. However for the most part they seem kind of foolish, even the ‘noble kind and merciful’ king, though he sets them free that still seems a little foolish because these two men are breaking their brotherly bonds (which were taken very seriously – they were done via documentation and signed through contract), what is to say that they will keep their promise to accept the king’s judgment? Does this mean that chaucer does not think highly of God’s perfect creation? Does it indicate that humans, who have domain over the earth are suited for that great charge?

Also, can we go over medieval ideas of Nature? I know it is a complex and depth idea.
