I agree with Blakes idea of Chaucer placing characters into the tale that have characteristics that people of those times and today can relate to or be related to Chaucers The Canterbury Tales prologue showcases characters that can be related todayIn Chaucers The Canterbury Tales the nun and the pardoner are religious figures that people view as holy saints The Nun and pardoner are hypocrites as Chaucer added characteristics of them that most people wouldnt know or even pay attention to In the poem Chaucer describes the nun as modest quiet charitable and compassionate but he also says in lines 142-143 and straining to counterfeit a courtly kind of grace in these lines Chaucer calls the nun fake or artificial in her religion Chaucer also tells things about the pardoner which people would not have known about In lines 723-724 Chaucer says on one short day in money down he drew more than the parson in a month or two in these lines Chaucer tells how the pardoner someone who is supposed to be doing good for people so Into the church so religious and saintly but then steals from the one place you wouldnt even imagine The nun and the pardoner both have characteristics that some people have today People not only in the church have these tendencies but anywhere in the world People have these good looks and titles but no one knows what happens when those people get by themselves no one can read their mind to know if the thoughts in their mind go with their actions as a person Chaucer does a fine job at adding these characters and characteristicsAlso in the tales Chaucers adds the squire and the knight who are father and son The squire would be known as a rising knight Chaucer describes the squire as handsome pretty boy that tries to impress people Chaucer also adds in the poem one thing that stood out to me
