The Canterbury Tales
Geoffery Chaucer

Canterbury Tales, The: Pardoner's Tale, The :: Geoffrey Chaucer :: David Patterson, 2012 :: 11:30 min.
Introduced in the Prologue as a con artist who preaches a good sermon, here the Pardoner tells a cautionary tale of three men who unexpectedly find a treasure. Greed leads to mutual betrayal and an ironic moral, one that confirms the Pardoner's warning about man's baser instincts.

Medieval English modernized by John Robert Moore.
