POINT OF VIEW

Chaucer brings us closer to the Knight's Tale by occasionally switching into an "I" narration, such as when he describes the altars Theseus has built to Mars:


There saw I first the dark imagining Of Felony, and all the compassing [planning] (lines 1137- 1138)

He also changes his point of view from telling of first one person, then another; from telling of human exploits to the arguments of the gods. This makes us feel like we ourselves are gods, able to see more than any individual character.
