The Pardoner rode along with the Summoner. The Pardoner has hair as yellow as wax that hung very long. Bulging eye balls, much like a hare. His voice was that of a goat, and he enjoyed bragging of the pieces he had in possession. He had a large piece of the sail that St. Peter used. He would use these objects, find a parson to astound, and in only a day he drew more than the parson. By lying he made fools of the priests and the congregation. Although he was rude to the parsons, he was a noble clergyman. He was a very good reader, and could tell stories very well.
Chaucer felt that the Pardoner was a very untrustworthy man.pardoner.gif
