dc.description.abstractChaucer’s Man of Law’s Tale has been largely ignored in comparison to the rest of The Canterbury Tales due to the rhetorical embellishment in the tale. However, examining the tale in the cultural context of its narrator, as well as in the context of the textual and oral rhetorical strategies of the fourteenth century, reveals that the Man of Law creates an argument out of his fictional tale that ties the developing fourteenth century common law system to divine justice, thereby justifying his profession to his audience
