The Franklin is a character from the Canterbury Tales who will be analyzed in the following essay. My Character the Franklin did not change throughout the passage. However the Franklin has a white daisy petal beard and he was Epicurus’s son and often lived for pleasure whenever he could. The Franklin also loved a morning of sop of cake and wine in whose opinion was a sensual delight. Unlike most people nowadays the Franklin made his household free to the entire County. It is said his bread and his ale were the finest of the fine and no one within the County had a better stock of wine. The Franklin in the passage would often bake meat pies of fish and flesh that showed just about all a man could think. Then when the seasons would change the dishes the Franklin made would change with them. Too my surprise It stated in the passage that the dishes that where made of flesh showed a positive aspect of his character. He often kept fat partridges in the coops and with all the dainties a man could think beyond many a beam and pike were in his pond. The Franklin was a member of the Shire and a dagger and a pink purse hung his girdle. Many said the Franklin’s purse was made of silk and as white as a cup of milk in the morning. Many would woe the cook who was the Franklin unless the sauce was sharp and hot as long as he wasn’t put on the spot.
In conclusion the Franklin was a very interesting character with many amazing qualities. And judging by this text one would really believe the Franklin is above and beyond of all characters in The Canterbury Tales.
