The Summoners Tale By: Michael Allen & Anthony Alachi
The Summoner tells people who have committed crimes that they have to go to court.Due to his position, the Summoner was not generally liked. He was known as a scoundrel and people were scared of him when they saw him coming.
The Summoner repays the Friar’s tale by telling his own tale about a friar. In the Summoner’s tale, a friar goes to preach in Holderness, which is in Yorkshire. During his sermons, the friar asks for donations for the church, and afterwards he asks for donations for himself.
The friar reaches the house of Thomas. The friar finds Thomas ill and asks Thomas’s wife to make him a meal. Thomas’s wife tells him that her children have died, and the friar claims that he has seen a vision of the children in heaven. He goes on to say that friars have more heavenly visions than other people because they live more godly lives and to explains that Thomas is ill because he gives little to the church.
The friar lectures that Thomas should be giving all his money to the friar.Then he has a sermon . At the end, Thomas announces that he is “sitting on” a donation for the friars, but that they must divide it equally among themselves. The friar reaches behind Thomas’s back to grab the “donation,” and Thomas lets out a large fart.
The friar runs to the lord of the village, demanding to know how to divide a fart into twelve. The lord’s squire recommends that the friar sit on the center of a wagon wheel, and place the other eleven friars around the edge so that when the friar farts, the fart will travel down the spokes of the wheel and be shared among all the other friars.
