Upon their return, Benedict confronted them by asking, “‘Where did you eat?’ They answered: ‘Nowhere.’ He said to them: ‘Why are you lying? Didn’t you enter the house of such and such a woman?

The Story Behind the Object: The Marriage Feast of Cana by Paolo Veronese Appearing in the Gospel of John in the New Testament of the Bible, The Marriage at Cana tells the story of Jesus’s first miracle, the turning of water into wine.

On their way to visit the shrine of Thomas à Becket in Canterbury, a group of nine and twenty pilgrims decide to tell tales during their journey and the one with the best tale shall win a supper. This essay will focus on the Pardoner, his prologue and his tale.

Right there is a great example when thought about. Because, right after Jack said all the fun things they would do as a tribe many of the boys followed and joined him. This may be a prime example, but there are smaller examples that many don’t notice or turn a blind eye to. A smaller example is when events turn serious many will no longer listen to their leader. On page 142 the boys are all discussing how the fire and rescue is most important, but Samneric get the conch and together say, “That must be fun like Bill says-and he’s invited us- to a feast-meat-crackling-I could do with some meat.” This is a good example because it shows that people will try and get out of the serious stuff and instead do what they think is most important which to them at the time was meat.
