    3. Their are many lines that describe his personality. In line 423 it says "No one alive could talk as well as he did" line 446 it states that their were no superfluitities for pleasure" which means that he was very focuesd on his work and did not worry much about his personal life.

    think Chaucers purpose of including the doctor was to show the importance of a doctor in the middle ages with all of the dieses and trying to find cures.Also, I think the doctor was included in Canterbury Tales to show the significance of money during this time period.

    What modern day occupation might correspond to your medieval character and why? In my opinion, the closest thing to a monk would have to be someone who works in church like a pope or priest.

    Again, there aren't specific lines, but as most people would think of monks, the Chaucer's monk is comepletely different. He rebilious, ignores most rules, and lives and controls is own life.

    1. The specific occupation of the doctor during the middle ages was to try and save people from dieses such as the black death and the plague.

    The Monk Alisha Nieves
    {Chaucer.gif}
    Part 1.
    What does the need for this occupation tell us about the time period? To become a monk was all your own choice. We didn't really need them. Monks can be around at any time period, but this one was more religious.
    What was his or her social standing? They were mostly just hard workers for the monastaries they belonged too; almost servants.
    ...
    What details about this character does Chaucer not include? The way that Chaucer described the monks, he made them sound more like hunters or travelers, but monastary monks are very different from that. monastary monks are very conservative, not like Chaucer's monks.
    What modern day occupation might correspond to your medieval character and why? In my opinion, the closest thing to a monk would have to be someone who works in church like a pope or priest.
    Part 2.
    THE PROLOGUE
    The Merry Words of the Host to the Monk
    "When ended was my tale of Melibee
    And of Prudence and her benignity,
    Our host remarked: "As I am faithful man,
    And by the precious corpus Madrian,
    I'd rather than a barrel of good ale
    That my wife Goodlief could have heard this tale!
    For she has no such patience, I'll avow,
    As had this Melibeus' Prudence, now.
    By God's own bones! When I do beat my knaves
    She fetches forth the stoutest gnarly staves
    And cries out: 'Slay the damned dogs, every one!
    And break their bones, backbone and every bone!'
    And if but any neighbour, aye, of mine! ..."
    When the tale of Melibee, Prudence, and her benignity ended,
    the Monk said "I am a faithful man, and by the corpus of Madrain,
    and then a barrel of good ale, that his wife Goddlief, he didn;t want that tale heard.
    She has no patience and had Meibeus prudence.
    By God's own bones, when he beats his knaves,
    She goes and get the stoutes gnarly staves.
    She screams "slay the damned dogs, everyone! And kill them, break every bone!"...

    The Monk Alisha Nieves
    What specific occupation does your character practice? The monk doesn't really have a special job, but he does live in a covent with his "brothers". They devote their lives to prayer, chasity, solitude, and obedience. Some of the monks travel, but most don't even leave their homes.{Chaucer.gif}
