While not righteous or honorable in any traditional sense, the Pardoner argues that he is appropriate to preach against his personal vice of greed due to his understanding of the sin and that in the process he is able to truly assist others in the relinquishment of their faults. In correspondence, the Pardoner “preach for nothing but for greed of gain… from it, I can bring them to repent” (p. 243). The transparency of the Pardoner’s confessions is without a doubt
The pardoner is proud that he absolves people of their sins, while committing one of his own. He brags to the other pilgrims that his purpose as a pardoner is to “preach for nothing but for greed of gain” and therefore, as he explains, “I preach against the very vice/ I make my living out of - avarice” (Pardoner’s Tale, 243). The pride the pardoner has in his work allows him to successfully swindle money from people because he enjoys deceiving them into thinking they are donating money to the Church, when really he uses the profit to his own advantage. Through his bragging, the pardoner shows no remorse for his actions and the pride he has in his sinful
The elder two “agreed to slay the third and youngest.” (Chaucer 257/258). Literally as soon as the youngest left, the other two started plotting his death. But what they would not expect is that he had had the same thought. He purchases wine that contains poison, killing two birds with one stone. Upon his return the youngest rioter stabbed to death, and the other two died from drinking the poisoned wine.
He viewed Odysseus and his men as intruders. To show them how angry he is, Polyphemus does this “Then he dismembered them and maid his meal/ gasping and crunching like a mountain lion everything: innards, flesh and marrow bones” (9.195-198). The Cyclops savagely murdered Odysseus’s men. After he is done, Odysseus and his men make a plan to leave. There plan is to get the Cyclops drunk and stab his eye out, so he cannot see and they can escape.
The youngest man was afraid that the other two won 't give him the money, he bought one bottle of poison and put into other two bottles of wines, saved the third one without poison for himself. They killed him when he returned, after that they sat down and drunk the wines and died, then three of them found
Greed instantly blinded the rioters from their original mission of justice, and “no longer was it Death those fellows sought.” (Chaucer 253) The fellows individually began to seek their own gain and larger share of the gold. One pardoner leaves, and the other two plots against the one. However, the one returns with cups of poisoned wine, and after the two attacked him, they drank the wine and died. Ultimately, each of the rioters truly did meet death. Each of the pardoners sought to kill another in order to get all the gold to himself, when even a third was ample.
The three rioters, an old man, and Death himself were some of the main characters in the Pardoner’s tale. The three rioters were witnesses to a funeral knell which took place while the threesome was drinking at a tavern. One of these young men was informed that the corpse that was being carried was one of their companions, the readers are unsure about this statement because these young flemish men were described as drunk by the Pardoner. The old man instructed the flemish rioters on where they can find Death whom they blame for the murder of the body in the coffin. From one perspective, the old man represents the potential evil within an individual.
The discovery of this gold corrupted the rioters and led them to their death. This story is ironic because the reader expects them to end up with the gold but they all die in the end. After the story, the Pardoner says "Your horse may throw you down and break your neck" implying that you will die if you do not buy his relics. This is ironic because the Pardoner is being greedy just after he told a story about how greed will get you killed. These examples of irony in the Pardoner's tale serve to demonstrate specific moral lessons.
For them to get some money from the Dorset family they thought about kidnapping Johnny and then make them give them money for Johnny. So when they went to get Johnny, Bill tried to give him some candy and Johnny hit him in the eye with a brick. After he hit Bill in the eye, they started to chase him and when they caught him they took him to a cave. While they was at the cave Bill was beat up by Johnny. Then Sam told Johnny to not beat up Bill while he gone or he was going to take him home and Johnny didn’t want to go home.
As opposed to the Grandmothers constant change of morals to favor certain situations, the Misfit has morals that are set in stone and adhere to his past, present and future. As the two characters converse, religion sparks an interest in the Misfit because it is something he is interested in understanding but knowing it must not be true. He believes that he must see it with his own eyes to prove the existence. His concept of reality also relates himself to Jesus, so much so as to believe he is a realistic representation of Him. He goes on to tell that the only difference is between the crimes committed and the proof held against him.
