Anti- Idealistic means that it doesn't espouse good Christian morals and ideals. Most of the pilgrims are actually hypocrites who say one thing and do another hence destroying the ideals of both church and gentry. Chaucer’s work was very much a scathing critique of the idealized Church and upper class.
