This engaging summary presents an analysis of The Reeve’s Tale by Geoffrey Chaucer, which tells the story of an unscrupulous miller who cheats the townsfolk out of corn and sees himself as superior to them. He gets his comeuppance when he tries to steal corn from a nearby college: two northern students who have come to his mill to guard against theft get their revenge on him by sleeping with both his wife and his daughter.
