Chaucer takes a satirical approach to the Monk, but a criticizing tone with the Friar. He admits that the Monk does not follow the rules of his position, but questions, "Why should he?" because he is not actually doing anything wrong. With the Friar, however, Chaucer criticizes him because he is doing something wrong-stealing from the poor, fraternizing with barmaids, and sleeping around.
