Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales and Boccacio’s Decameron are also classic frame stories. In Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, the characters tell tales suited to their personalities and tell them in ways that highlight their personalities. The noble knight tells a noble story, the boring character tells a very dull tale, and the rude miller tells a smutty tale. Homer’s Odyssey too makes use of this device; Odysseus’ adventures at sea are all narrated by Odysseus to the court of king Alcinous in Scheria. Other shorter tales, many of them false, account for much of the Odyssey. Many modern children’s story collections are essentially anthology works connected by this device, such as Arnold Lobel’s Mouse Tales, Paula Fox’s The Little Swineherd, and Phillip and Hillary Sherlock’s Ears and Tails and Common Sense.
