He therefore had a special love of gold.” Additionally, Chaucer criticized the behavior of another character, the Friar. Like the Monk, the Friar enjoyed a lavish and extravagant life style, always ready to befriend young women or rich men who might need his services, the Friar actively administers the sacraments in his town, especially those of marriage and confession. However, Chaucer’s worldly Friar has taken to accepting bribes and exploiting the hapless and hopeless to achieve financial gain as seen in lines 250-273: “He was the finest beggar of his
Also he felt unwanted by Diana. Since Diana treats Mr. Austen like this she must not feel the same way about him. The short story “The Chaser” is an example of how men get treated badly and unequally because they do so much for the women but the women doesn’t seem to care on what they do. In conclusion, the story the chaser shows feminist criticism because Mr. Austen felt like he needs to get a love potion for Diana. In this case, Diana has the full control in the relationship.
man. This conflict is an external problem. The main issue is that Chillingworth tortures Dimmesdale because he suspects that Dimmesdale was the one that committed the sin along side of Hester. When the people think that Dimmesdale is sick it’s because he is just so righteous but it’s mainly because of the fact that his secret is being tortured and pulled out of him, by Roger Chillingworth. Also another problem of man vs. Man is Pearl and Hester.
Barnes portrays these men as feminine, slightly alien, and completely lacking in masculinity. Initially, Barnes is triggered by this group of men because they are with Brett and he is jealous. However, there are other reasons for Barnes frustrations that run much deeper. For Barnes, someone who is struggling to maintain any sliver of manhood he can, these homosexual men are appalling because contrary to Barnes, they are choosing to be less masculine. These men were not injured in the war.
He does not take the measure to simply admit to additionally wanting money, rather, exploits his sole desire for wealth and fortune. This creates a situation of verbal irony, as his job consists of his preaching against greed driven by his own greed. Finally, Chaucer exemplifies the true greedy persona the Church withholds through the voice of the Pardoner stating he, “will preach and beg in sundry lands;/ I will not work and labour with my hands” (“Pardoner’s Prologue” 157-158). In case the audience was not already in light of the mask the church hides behind, the pardoner proves once his true greediness. He states that he will not “work and labour” with his hands as the apostles did, who wove baskets
Manciple: The Manciple was also educated in the field of the law and tells a tale about how appearances are often deceiving. Summoner: The Summoner is another immoral pilgrim not true to his profession, for he does not truly summon impious people to church. He chooses whom to select and is often paid off by sinners. His tale is in reaction to the Friar 's strong anti-summoner tale and is presented as a satirical parody. Cook: The Cook is one of the vulgar pilgrims of the journey who becomes involved with violence and arguments along the way.

Their sexual encounters corrode the nephew’s subconscious to where he idealizes an unknown land in his
This shows that this is not like the love that Romeo had for Rosalind which seemed to be a silly crush. That disappeared once he saw Juliet. In my opinion Romeo and Juliet’s love is not real. Romeo was just lusting after Juliet because he could not get Rosalind and Juliet was easier to get. Shakespeare uses a lot of religious imagery in this
For example, Friendship, love between father and child, romantic love, as well as the love of possessions and money are the heterogeneous types of love shown in The Merchant of Venice. In Jessica and Shylock’s relationship, there is little affection shown between the two of them. Jessica think negatively of her father because of his reputation to be a money-hungry Jew. Shylock fits this stereotype because of his love of possessions and money. Christians look down upon him because he lends money with interest, which the Christian faith deems unmoral.
Holden considers what the “perverts” are doing is “crumby behaviour.” He believes that people should only be having sex if they care deeply for each other. In Holden 's mind anything that is sexual to him is perverted. Moreover, another event justifying how innocence affects Holden is when he notices an old “distinguished looking guy” dressing into “silk stockings, high heeled shoes” and brassiere smoking a cigarette. Holden is baffled by

Though John Proctor‘s affair with Abigail marks him as a sinful person, his good nature makes him a tragic hero. Proctor is said to be respected and feared in the town, but he began to view himself as a fraud. He is fully aware that he has sinned, yet he has not confessed it (1245). His actions mark him as a lecher. This, along with his sparse church attendance, gives enough reason to kick him out of the puritan town and label him a sinner, best to be avoided.
The ninety-five Theses were written by Martin Luther. He didn’t like the way the church was. He thought that they were getting over on the people. For instance they had you pay for someone else’s sins. They would make you think that they were getting into Heaven, but in reality you were just making the church wealthier.

Arthur was torn between admitting he was wrong and confessing his sin or to hide it and let Hester be the mockery of the town by herself. In The Scarlet letter Arthur was Hester’s lover, but no one knew it. Arthur was the towns priest and no one could ever know what he did because it was a very bad sin in their eyes. Hawthorne states in The Scarlet Letter, “The minister, with a voice so sweet, tremulous, but powerful, insomuch that the hall reechoed, and the hollow amour rang with it” (104). The minister was a very nice and sweet man.
