The Dispute Between the Summoner and the Friar

After the Wife of Bath’s Prologue had ended the Friar laughed and said that it was a very long preamble to a tale. The Summoner cut in and said that the Friar was a fine one to talk of perambulation since he himself is always falling into other people’s affairs. The Friar got angry and vowed to tell a story exposing a Summoner. The Summoner retaliated by remarking that even he had a couple of stories about Friars. The Host ordered both of them to shut up and asks the Wife of Bath to tell her story.


Notes

The squabble between the Summoner and the Friar is an indication of their retaliatory tales that immediately follow the Wife of Bath’s tale.
