Please answer one of the following. Each answer must be a minimum of 5-7 sentences, and it must include a specific quote from the text to support your answer, whether it supports it implicitly or explicitly (Think Quote Journal here).
1) Explain the irony in the fact that the Pardoner preaches a story with this particular moral. Considering the contradiction between what he practices and what he preaches, is he truly evil, simply drunk, or so used to cheating that he does it automatically?
2) What moral does the Pardoner what us to draw from his tale? How is it different from the moral you think Chaucer wants us to draw from "The Pardoner's Tale?"
