The Reeve was old and choleric and thin;
His beard was shaven closely to the skin.
He kept his bins and garners very trim;
No auditors could gain a point on him.
No bailiff, serf or herdsman dared to kick,
He knew their dodges, knew their every trick.
Probably not one of the most charming characters but without doubt a good business head; once again The Reeve proves the timeless quality in Chaucer’s writing, every Pilgrim can still be recognised today over 600 years later.
