The Pardoner’s Tale The Pardoner’s Tale is a unique story introduced by a unique character. The Pardoner preaches against sin and avarice by quoting that greed is the root of all evil. In his introduction to the others in the Canterbury Tales, he claims he has relics that he shows when he is preaching. These relics, he admits, are fake, and that he is gripped by the very greed he preaches against. The Pardoners tale also illustrates how sin can lead to a person’s downfall.

In the story Day 1: Story 1 Ser Cepperello is represented as a thief, glutton and liar. Boccaccio speaks of him as a drunk who can’t be trusted. In the story as he faces death he if given one final chance to repent his sins.

During the course of the case, the leftist papers accuse the police and produce contrary information through a series of lies from the state. The humour of the play becomes increasingly more intense from the outset, which assists in destroying the credibility of the police; the man with the wooden leg and the glass eye is seen as not being a real man but appears to be more like a puppet or a maniac who constantly changes his personality. Fo does this to show the demystification of man and pinpoints the falseness of people that take part in the inquest.
The Pardoner’s Tale The Pardoner’s Tale is a great story that portrays greed in humanity at its best. First, we have three characters that are in search for death, but they come across temptation instead. For example, the three rioters are in search for death, but when they find the gold, temptation takes over them. Second, the conflict that erupts between the characters is enough to inspire greed in anyone.

This aroused people to think Poe was a sociopath and strange as a person in real life. The title, “The Cask of Amontillado” has a meaning of its own.

In this story, Poe is telling the story in first person point of view. He is Montresor, the protagonist of the story who will take revenge on Fortunato, the antagonist.
To remove people who reminds him that his nothing but a gentility and honor pretender, he plans to havoc their lives one by one. The other area of his jealousy is Cassio’s pretty face; that Iago clearly revealed his unpleasantness toward this through his words, “Cassio hath a daily beauty in his life that makes me ugly.” Act5 scene

Another character that is also affected by Iago is the gullible Roderigo. He is very much used and milked to the point where at the end of the play is fed up and takes his own actions.
