The Pardoners Tale I think that The Pardoners Tale was a fair story The beginning plot is somewhat hard to follow but this is offset by the ending and the story sends messages to the reader The plot to The Pardoners Tale starts with three friends searching for death They want to find death and slay him They meet an old man that tells them to look under an oak tree They go to the tree and find a large sum of gold The three decide to wait until after dark to retrieve the gold and divide it among them The youngest of the three goes into town and buy 3 bottles of wine and some poison He poisons two of the bottles to give his companions While he is gone the older two decide to kill the youngest They plan for one of them to wrestle him to the ground while the other stabs him to death When the youngest of the three returns later that evening the other two put their plan into action and kill the youngest Then they drink the poisoned wine and die In this story the narrator sends a few different messages to the reader The fact that the three look for death and find it Says to the reader Be careful what you wish for because you just might find it Another message is sent buy the gold the three find that ultimately drives them to kill each other This shows that Money is the root of all evil In conclusion I give this story a rating of 2 out of 5 stars The main problems I had with the story was its slow start and hard to follow beginning The action in the end save the story in my opinion I would recommend this story to anyone interested in Anglo-Saxon Literature
