About this design
Canterbury Tales - Emelye Poster
From The Knight's Tale. This wonderfully detailed and colourful illustration is from the book The Story of the Canterbury Pilgrims retold from Chaucer by F. J. Harvey Darton and illustrated by M. L. Kirk. The book was published in 1914. The Canterbury Tales is a collection of stories written in Middle English by Geoffrey Chaucer at the end of the 14th century. The tales (mostly in verse, although some are in prose) are told as part of a story-telling contest by a group of pilgrims as they travel together on a journey from Southwark to the shrine of Saint Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral. The Knight's Tale summary - Theseus ordered that Arcite and Palamon, two royal cousins, be imprisoned in Athens for life. They passed their time imprisoned in a tower in Athens until they saw Emelye in a nearby garden. Both fell immediately in love with her. Palamon compared her to Venus, and prayed escape from the prison; similarly, Arcite claimed that he would rather be dead than not have Emelye. Both escape prison at different times, but they meet by chance. Jealousy leads to a battle. Arcite was declared the winner after wounding Palamon, a large earthquake trembled the grounds, frightening the horse Arcite was upon, and throwing him off. Arcite was killed by the fall. Before he died, however, he told Emelye that her future husband, Palamon, was the most worthy man she could marry. Theseus ordered the new wedding of Emelye and Palamon after a commemorative funeral for Arcite.
