Discernment Delimma after reading Chaucer’s “The Cuckoo and the Nightingale”
by Andrea Elizabeth
I would use a Pithless graph, but I can’t figure out how to draw on here. Picture four circles that overlap across and down, but not diagonally. Top left, Pleasure. Top right, Construction. Bottom left, Destruction. Bottom right, Pain. Where Pleasure and Construction overlap, Heaven or Prelest. Where Pleasure and Destruction overlap, Temptation. Where Destruction and Pain overlap, Hell or Prelest. Where Construction and Pain overlap, The Bitter Pill.
