The Characters in the Millers Tale by Geoffrey Chaucer

- The Characters in the Millers Tale by Geoffrey Chaucer During the middle ages, religion was the matrix of a person’s life. Everything, even boiling an egg, depended on religion, for the egg was cooked when the prayer was finished. With religion came certain morals and ideals that even now are associated with Christianity. A person was viewed based on how he measured up to the ideals of his profession or position in life.

Humor in Chaucer's The Miller's Tale

- Chaucer's "The Miller's Tale" should be tragic, because a lot of horrible things happen to the characters.

However, readers get a humorous feeling from the story, rather than feeling sorry for the carpenter's unfair life. Chaucer makes the whole story come across as comic rather than tragic. This humor is created by the Miller's narration, the use of irony, the cartoon-like characters, and the twists of plot....   [tags: Comic Effect in The Miller's Tale]

The Role of Competition and Predation in Ecology

- Competition and predation are two key factors that affect the stability of an ecosystem, such as a lake. There are three theories on the affects of competition. Competition may lead to competitive exclusion, stable coexistence, or niche differentiation. It has been shown that in marine environments, species are strong competitors for both light and nutrients and thus competition leads only to competitive exclusion (Passarge et al. 2006). The competitive exclusion principle states that if two species compete for the same resource in the same location, then one of those species will go extinct because one species will be the better competitor (Jenson 2010)....   [tags: ecology]
