The paper analyzes "The Pardoner's Tale" and offers an example of how the Pardoner's character as revealed in the General Prologue, is similar to the sinners he describes in "The Pardoner's Tale" in Chaucer's immortal "Canterbury Tales."

From the Paper:

"The Pardoner described in Chaucer's Prologue to "The Canterbury Tales" is quite unusual for a man of the church. For though the Pardoner is described as a fine ecclesiast with a polished tongue he is nothing more than a sinful con artist, who uses his sermons to inflict guilt upon his listeners in order to rob them. Chaucer: Prologue: The Pardoner carries phony relics that he sells to pardon his listeners of their sins."
