    I've never thought Chaucer was criticising the social structure of his time.

    The prologue describes the pilgrims - their appearance, characters and social positions.

    1. This looks like homework. We don't do your homework for you here.

    2. This is a forum on English language and grammar, not Chaucer studies.

    Best of luck.
