One of the characters in the Canterbury Tale is Squire, who gets only twenty lines of details, focusing on his appearance, his abilities, and his sexuality. Squire is the Knight's son and apprentice, who accompany him on the pilgrimage. Squire plays a great role in the General Prologue to represent both youthfulness and femininity. The author, Chaucer, gives him a description that he is everything that the man ought to be. Chaucer tells us that he rides a horse well, can joust well, and he carves the meat for the Knight well at dinner. However, from the portrait he has, we tend to get the impression that he is just pretty young and he is not a man but a man-boy. We also end up with the impression that the Squire is a teenager, a bit of a pretty boy, and prone to serious infatuations that keep him up all night. This paper will give a character analysis of the character Squire that will focus on his personality, motivations, relationships and the roles he plays to bring out the major themes of the Canterbury tale.
