Chaucer’s Pardoner is a highly untrustworthy character. He presents himself as someone of ambiguous gender and sexual orientation, further challenging social norms. The narrator is not sure whether the Pardoner is an effeminate homosexual or a eunuch (castrated male).
Since visiting relics on pilgrimage had become a tourist industry, the Pardoner wants to cash in on religion in any way he can. He does this by selling tangible, material objects—whether slips of paper that promise forgiveness of sins or animal bones. People can string them around their necks as charms against the devil.
After telling the group how he tricks people into indulging his own avarice through a sermon he preaches on greed. The Pardoner tells of a tale that exemplifies this vice. Amazingly he attempts to sell pardons to the group after finishing his story

The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
