Transcript of The Canterbury Tales: The Monk

The Canterbury Tales: The Monk Monk's Appearence The monk is a fat, bald, and greasy manly man with eyes that roll to the back of his head. The monk basically wear his usual robes with a little animal skin and also wears a small rope necklace with a love knot tied to the end of it. This love knot may suggest that he is a stud with women. Monks in the Middle ages Monks are usually dressed in a robe like attire, their hair shaved in the middle, and they are able to recite bible verses. the rules of the monastery say that monks should not hunt, be reckless, or leave the monastery. Saint Augustine feels that a monk who does not follow this philosophy, are no good to their monastery or place of prayer. The Monk's Role in medieval society This monk’s role in medieval society is to be a certain satire and contradiction to his job title. He shows a sign of leadership and demand as he follows his lifestyle other than god’s and how he refuses manual labor, praying, studying to do what he loves. Monks are people that follow a pure life without sin in it at all. The Monk's Personality The monk is rebellious; he ignores the rules, and lives and controls his own life. Chaucer goes to show this in his book that the monk does not care about the rules in fact; the monk will never follow the rules. The rules will interfere with what he loves to do in life.

Chaucer's view The way I see it, Chaucer makes the monk like he's a disgusting creature in his story because of his current occupation. but in reality, the monk is actually a normal man with a not so regular job. He dresses like a monk but, think of him as a monk without having to give up everything in his life .
