Write a note on the use of symbols in Prologue to the Canterbury Tales.

Springtime is certainly a symbol in the prologue, The droghte of March hath perced to the roote." Springtime is when the pilgrims begin their journey so it represents new beginnings. Crops and soil are discussed which represent growth and renewal. Each pilgrim’s clothing represents his or her peculiar personality traits. The Wife of Bath's red stockings, for example, can symbolize her lustful nature.
