The Knight from The Canterbury Tales

The Knight was a veteran of many wars, such as Granada . . . (lines .)  He was valorous and a good fighter.  Lines . . say. . . . He is described as  . . . .and is wearing an old stained tunic instead of armor or nicer clothing.  As a member of the nobility, the Knight could wear finery such as fur, but our Knight chooses to eschew the fine threads of the upper class.  Chaucer is telling us indirectly that the Knight is not a vain man.

The Knight is traveling with his son, the Squire.
