An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic Unit Comparing and Contrasting Three Literary Works: The Canterbury Tales (The Pilgrim), The Divine Comedy (The Poet), The Romance of the Rose (The Priest). Literature reflects the culture that produces it. It glorifies its virtues, mocks its vices and encourages its society to "dream the impossible dream."

Each of the selected literary works (The Canterbury Tales, The Romance of the Rose and The Divine Comedy) portrays society at the brink of the modern era. Each has one foot in the theocentric Middle Ages and one in the
homocentric Renaissance. Each work underscores our essential human need for humor, love and God. By studying these selections students will appreciate the evolution and contributions of this literature to
western civilization.
