Chanticleer: Meaning, Definition, Coastal Carolina Football

Meaning:

cock
 
chanticleer in British English
 “a cock,” c. 1300, from Old French Chantecler (Modern French Chanteclair), quasi-proper name of the cock in medieval stories of Reynard the Fox; literally “sing-loud” or “sing-clear,” from chanter “to sing” 

In Chaucer’s story, Chanticleer is a proud and fierce rooster who rules the roost. “For crowing there was not his equal in all the land,” he wrote. “His voice was merrier than the merry organ that plays in church, and his crowing from his resting place was more trustworthy than a clock.

Definition:

The protagonist of this mock-heroic story is Chanticleer, a rooster with seven wives, foremost among them the hen Pertelote. Pertelote dismisses Chanticleer’s dream of being attacked and tells him to go about his business.

A fox soon approaches and flatters him, recalling the exquisite song of Chanticleer’s father. The vain rooster is thus tricked into closing his eyes and crowing, only to be seized by the fox and carried off.

As we all know, Coastal’s athletic nickname and mascot, the Chanticleer, is derived from Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, one of the obligatory texts in the college English lit canon.
