The Canterbury Tales Big Brother Story
When applying the show Big Brother with the story The Canterbury Tales choosing the right characters to intermingle in a household is very difficult.

Another character I picked is The Nun. She was “Pleasant and friendly in her ways, and straining/ To counterfeit a courtly kind of grace” (142-143).
