The Canterbury Tales

Read the excerpt from Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, and then complete the sentences that follow.

But he looked hollow and went soberly.
Right threadbare was his overcoat; for he
Had got him yet no churchly benefice…

in the description of the (clerk,squire,knight) the word threadbare tells the audience that the character is (rich,poor,miserly) the reason for his situation is that he did not get any (blessings,incomes,jobs) from the catholic church.
