The last group for locker tag.

The Prioress (Nun):

· “the top nun”

· Of Noble birth or seems to act like it

· Has a lot of pride which is consider as the vice

· She travel to France which most nuns have not so it makes you question her a little.

· Part of the clergy class

· Everyone after debated to put the prioress at an 8.

Discuss about Locker Tag

· Franklin: Hero aspect is he does the things that should be done. Generous, kind.

· Prioress: Doesn’t show any bad aspect. Even with pride she still cares for little animal but questionable since she should be taking care of people.

· Squire: Hero aspect is that he is loyal to his country, family, and God. Bad aspect: spends too much on his self and lust.

· Yeomen: He is needed on the trip in order to make equipment they may require. Vice: Greed for one medal that shows he travels to fight for the king.

o Does the color possibly mean something? (green = envy)

· We decide after discussing the locker tag to change the yeomen, squire, and doctor. New change: Yeomen->Doctor->Squire

· Doctor: Heals People, He is more of a man of science then god. Greed.

· Skipper: Stealing wine from people sleeping on the boat. Kills.

· (Decide to change Skipper’s and Merchant’s Spot: Merchant and Skipper switched places)

· Miller: Poor. Loud mouth about sins. Immoral. Cheats and steal. Takes corn and resells it.

· Are we being sexes between the squire and the wife of bath.

o They both are lustful and get around and spend money on themselves.

· (Change the wife and the miller) the wife of bath ->Miller

Discussion on Franklin’s and Pardoner’s tale

· Franklin’s Tale (pg 449)

o Love concurs all

o Lust. Greed. Envy. Lechery.

o Worries about her husband so wife makes a deal with a guy that if he can move all the rocks from the shore that her husband would land on then she would sleep with him

o He goes to his brother to get a magician using dark magic to get rid of the rocks.

o In the end the wife tells the husband about everything but in the end she is forgiven and everyone forgives for all the deals they make and giving the tale a happy ending.

o Hero Element:

§ Faith, loyalty, justice, honor

· Pardoner’s Tale (pg 506)

o Trying to go find death to kick it’s ass

o We reference Harry Potter to the Pardoner’s tale on how in both stories they both look for death which leads them to their end.

o Death: trickery, deceiving

(Reads the tale of the Merchant’s introduction)
