Alright. I'm supposed to respond to this, but I'm not really sure how to respond. Here it is:
In one character we see a complex mix of what he is, what he is supposed to be, what he thinks he is, and how he is perceived by others. Trace the way Chaucer achieves this in the setup of the entire Canterbury Tales, and the Pardoner's Prologue and Tale.
I know that's he's a con artist, he knows this but still believes himself to be holy and people still think he's doing good for the church.
OK, break it down a bit:
***he's a con artist,
***he knows this
***but still believes himself to be holy
***and people still think he's doing good for the church.
Now find lines in the Tales in which each of the above four items is made clear. You'll end up with a list of sorts, nothing in paragraphs yet.
