Chaucer English 315 The Summoner’s Prologue and Tale 1. Just as the friar suggested that summoners have much in common with the devil, the  Summoner offers the same suggestion with a scatological reference to where friars live in hell.  How does this connect to the end of the Summoner’s Tale? 2. What do you learn about the friar from the way he preaches and begs (1710-1760)? 3. What is the friar’s relationship with Thomas and his wife? Does he resolve disputes between  them? Does he eat anything he is given? Does he mourn the recent loss of their child? How does  he take advantage of his friendship with them? (1771-1870).  4. The friar claims that the prayers of friars are more effective than anyone else’s. Why? (1870- 1947). 5.  Thise curatz been ful necligent and slowe To grope tenderly a conscience In shrift; in prechyng is my diligence, And studie in Petres wordes and in Poules.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
