canterbury tales dinner party
Transcript of canterbury tales dinner party
“Well hello, Mr.Squire, lovely seeing me sitting next to you.”
“The pleasure is all mine Lady of Bath. You look lovely.”
“Why, what a compliment coming from someone so young and handsome.”
“I am not so young.”
“Don’t be offended, youth is a gift.”
“I may be young in age, but old in experience.”
“So you say you are wise?”
“Yes Mi Lady.”
“Only the arrogance of youth would say that, squire.”
“Who do you think you are to acquire such a thing?”
“Again Sir Squire, do not be offended by my jokes. I tease.”
“How guile you are Lady Bath.” Conversation #1 We decided to seat the Merchant and the Knight next to each other. They were matched-up because we did not think that they would have much to discuss so that they could focus on their other more interesting conversations. More than likely, they would not come into any kind of conflict. The two of them would not have much in common to talk about except for their wealth. The Knight is wealthy and has a high rank while the Merchant only pretends to be rich. Even though the Merchant is actually in a lot of debt, he is very good at pretending to be wealthy. The Summoner and Cook:
“ Hello Cook, did you help make this fine meal?”
“Oh no Summoner, I actually wanted a good meal!”
“That’s good to here, now we have no fear of food poising!”
“So summoner, what’s wrong with your face?”
“Excuse me? Well cook the same thing that’s wrong with yours!”
“I didn’t mean to call you ugly, just wondering why all the blemishes?”
“Why do you have a sore on your knee? You would think for a cook you would be cleaner. I may take that up with somebody.”
“No! I won’t be able to cook anywhere then!”
“Think about that next time you insult me miscreant!”
“Think about this conversation next time I cook for you!” Conversation #2 We decided to seat the Friar Hubert and the Oxford Cleric next to each other. This would be a good match-up because they both are highly educated and use sophisticated language. They would also have something to talk about since they both run institutions. Friar Hubert is in charge of running/maintaining his monastery and the Oxford Cleric is responsible for running/maintaining of the college where he is employed. The two of them probably get along well since they have things to relate to on and both like to talk a lot. 1st Course: Unclean water and mead, Unleaven Bread 2nd Course: Pork and vegetable Stew 3rd Course: Roasted Lamb, Veal and Oysters, and Parsnips. 4th Course: Payne Foundewe (bread pudding) This ties to the text because this is what they ate during the Medieval Times, which is when the Canterbury Tales was set. "with a forking beard and motley dress; high on his horse he sat." "And she was skilled wondering by the way. She had gap-teeth, set widely, truth to say." " a most distinguished man, from the day on which he first began to ride abroad followed chivalry." " a lover and cadet, a lad of fire. With locks as curly as if they had been pressed." "a wanton, one and merry, a Limiter, a very festive fellow." "He lived for pleasure and had always done." "riding a trot, finally myself- that was the lot." "He could make a good thick soup and a tastey pie, but what a pity- it seemed so to me that he should have an ucler on his knee." "Pleasent and friendly in her ways, and straining to counterfiet a courtely kind of grace, a stately bearing fitting to her place." "He never spoke a word more than need, short, to the point, and lofty in his theme." " The nicer rules of conscience he ignored. If, when he fought, the enemy vessel sank, he sent his prisoners hone; they walked the plank." "He knew, whether dry, cold, moist or hot; he knew their seat, their humor and condition.He was a perfect practicing physician."
