The Canterbury Tales are linked together by the theme of a pilgrimage to the shrine of St. Thomas a'Becket, the murdered Archbishop of Canterbury. On the journey, the various members of the traveling group take turns entertaining each other with tales, some ribald, others amusing. The journey takes place in spring and the famous prologue celebrates the arrival of that season.
