Subject:        Falstaff as Chaucer

To add to my earlier attempt to align Falstaff with Chaucer: have you
ever noticed the Canterbury Tales allusions in Henry IV (e.g. the
pilgrimage to Canterbury to be robbed by Falstaff; the Franklin from
Kent, ditto; the reference to the hostess as Dame Partlet?
