The Friar

The friar is basically a higher up religious figure. Friars dedicate to a life of poverty and their income is through begging and confessions. Unlike his peers, the friar is very fond of money and riches and very good at attaining it. He is a smooth talking beggar that could get money from anyone. He rarely ever gives punishment to his confessors and is always gracious in forgiveness so that he can get the best donations. The others are always wearing super crusty cloaks but the friar wears super nice stuff. He's just not a very nice guy.

Quotes

"Men may give silver to the poore friars" (Chaucer ln. 232) This explains his way of manipulating broken men into giving him large donations for forgiveness.


"Accorded not by his faculty" (Chaucer ln. 244) This tells us about his superiority in his craft.

Modern comparison: Hillary Clinton

I think he's like Hillary in the way that she doesn't practice what she preaches and she's hypocritical and lies to the people she serves. She uses her unlimited wealth to get whatever she wants and can get away with anything.

The Parson

The parson is the exact opposite of the friar. He's a good dedicated churchman. He's honest and in search of spiritual prosperity. He lives in poverty but substitutes it for his religious highness.

Quotes

"He was also a learned man, a clerk," (Chaucer ln. 480" he was well educated man. This shows his dedication as a perish priest. With his education he old most likely gain significant wealth but he chose this life and lives it honestly.

Modern comparison: Abraham Lincoln

He was a good honest person that was true to his word. He valued the people he served and practiced what he preached.

Character Interaction

If these two people spent that much time together I doubt they would even talk. If they did they would just fight and the parson would most likely despise the friar. It would not be a fun time for either of them.
