They each reveal the underhanded means they use to extort money from their victims and agree to enter into a partnership. He is seemingly aware of his sin—it is not clear why he tells the pilgrims about his sin in the prologue before his tale commences. Instead the pilgrims ask the Pardoner for a moral tale. Paul as either sources or famed drunkards. They each bring a slice of England to the trip with their stories of glory, chivalry, Christianity, villainy, disloyalty, cuckoldry, and honor.

Again the summoner demands his money; again the woman refuses. Chaucer frequently places tales of religion and Christ-like worship with tales of unfaithful women and cuckolded men. Chaucer uses the fart as an ironic comment on the friar's claim that he can talk to God, and the fart, like a stroke of thunder, answers back. He gives the wife a long sermon on the virtues of fasting and sins of gluttony. Hollow execution nevertheless, the Pardoner is an excellent preacher against greed.

Getting even with the Friar for his tale of a wicked summoner, the Summoner tells of a wicked friar. An old man they brusquely query tells them that he has asked Death to take him but has failed. The Knight is the first to tell a story, one made up properly of honor and chivalry. Since visiting relics on pilgrimage had become a tourist industry, the Pardoner wants to cash in on religion in any way he can, and he does this by selling tangible, material objects—whether slips of paper that promise forgiveness of sins or animal bones that people can string around their necks as charms against the devil.

Exactly as the other two had planned it, it befell. He is depicted as smooth, delicate, lady-like and honey-tongued, duplicitous in his supposedly holy dealings, extremely rich from his deceitful profession and as a man whose very being is totally incongruous with his career as a servant of the Church.

They pilgrims hope not only to travel in this blessed time, but to have a rebirth of their own along the way. The Knight also brings along his Yeoman, or his second servant. The yeoman reveals that he is actually a demonto which the Pardoner and the friar book expresses minimal surprise—he enquires as to various aspects of hell and the forms that demons take.

Some pilgrims are faithful to Christ and his teachings, while others openly disobey the church and its pardoner and the friar book of faithfulness, honor, and modesty. A friar, who goes about seeking contributions, promises prayers and possible salvation in exchange for anything his parishioners will give.

Ultimately, it is plausible that Chaucer makes a societal statement long before his time that serves as a literary teaching moment in modern time.

The pardoner and the friar book of the three men draws the shortest straw and departs; while he is away, the remaining two plot to overpower and stab him upon his return. Everyone draws from a bundle to select the first taletellers and the Knight is the fortunate soul who begins these tales on the way to Canterbury.

Discovering that they are both bailiffs, the two men swear to be brothers to their dying day. In so doing, he makes Thomas more and more angry until Thomas finally says that he has a gift for the friar, on the condition that the friar swears to share the gift with the other friars.

Pardoners were known to exaggerate the efficacy of their indulgences and claimed the authority to promise deliverance not just from purgatory, but from hell itself. However, critic Alfred David, refutes such claims and asserts the possibility that the Old Man in "The Pardoner's Tale" is meant to symbolise more than unambiguous death, "the old man's identity does not admit a simple, unambiguous, and definitive answer such as Death or Death's Messenger".

He is seemingly aware of his sin—it is not clear why he tells the pilgrims about his sin in the prologue before his tale commences. Furthermore, he attempts to sell pardons to the group—in effect plying his trade in clear violation of the rules outlined by the host.

His sermon on fasting and gluttony is accompanied by his ordering a meal considered rather gluttonous. He sermonizes on the value of the "poor in spirit" and poverty, and yet he is openly insistent that money be given to him and not other monks or friars. The tale the Friar tells is, indeed, uncomplimentary.

He continually talks about increasing his profits in several ways. The narrator then gives a list of five guildsmen of little importance on this trip. The Friar preaches desire for higher things, but his own appetite is for food and things of this world. The Pardoner thus can be categorized along with the other bizarrely feminized males in the Tales, including AbsolonSir Thopas, and, if we believe the Host, Chaucer the character.

The worst one of them spoke first, arguing that Fortune had given them the treasure to live their life in happiness - but realizing that they could not carry the gold home without people seeing them and thinking them thieves.

The Canterbury Tales Summary and Analysis of The Pardoner's Tale

They killed him on his return, and sat down to enjoy the wine before burying his body — and, as it happened, drank the poison and died. The summoner urges the fiend to do as he is bid, but the fiend explains that, because the curse was not uttered from the heart and in sincerity, he has no power to do so.
