7) Chaucer gave an exaggeration of perfectness to the Knight dssdasdasfsa Differences 1) The Knight is a warrior, but the squire is more an artist (singing, poetry)

2) The Knight takes his duty very seriously, the squire is just along for the fun.

3)The squire is more concerned with his appearance and social status than the training his father is giving him.

4) Knight has much more experience (proven himself in battle, etc.) but the squire acts like he does not want the experiences. To the best of Chaucer's description, the knight is perfect at not only his job, but as a person also. Chaucer has nonstop praise for the Knight. He believes that the Knight is a profound person.

Chaucer views the Knight with great respect. He admires the Knight, and sees no negative in his personality. Chaucer sees the squire as an amusing and talented person, however also as a very bad squire. The squire is a failure because he is training to be a knight, but never wants to become one.

Chaucer is amused by the squire, and cannot see him becoming a knight, but rather a lover and an artist. Chaucer might not see the squire as a bad person, but without a doubt he is a terrible squire.
