Enraged and disgusted, the friar leaves Thomas and goes to see a wealthy lord, whom he tells of  this insult, saying, "I wont be asked to divide what cannot be divided into equal parts." The lord's  servant explains how the fart can be equally divided. The lord and his lady — everyone except the  friar — thinks the servant's answer is excellent. In the personal conflict between the Friar and the Summoner, the Friar's attack is on the Summoner's  intelligence. On the personal level, the Summoner's response makes the Friar seem a raving idiot.  Getting even with the Friar for his tale of a wicked summoner, the Summoner tells of a wicked friar.  The Summoner's story shows the Summoner's disdain for the pilgrim Friar and the Summoner's  belief that the message the friar in the tale espouses is of a blasphemous nature, one that inverts  and perverts the essence of his Christian order.

    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.
