Question

What impression does the narrator give of the church in his day? Cite details from his portrayals of religious figures to support your answer.

Solution

Verified

The narrator gives the impression that the church is corrupt. The monk disregards the church's strictures and he dresses more like a prosperous lord than a humble servant of God. The prioress is vain in her imitation of royal manners. The Friar is overly concerned with monetary gain and therefore cares little for beggars and lepers. He cares only for those who can give him money, food, and drink.
