The Miller’s Tale is a sexual comedy, in which the attractions of a young woman cause physical injury to her husband and her lover and humiliation to another suitor. It shows how love blinds men to their own folly and how pride comes before a fall. Sexual vanity takes the form of uxoriousness (excessive devotion to a spouse) in John; intellectual conceit in Nicholas; and narcissism in Absolon.
