Both are hypocritical, although they show this hypocrisy in different ways.   One way of seeing this hypocrisy, in the case of the physician's tale, is to examine the way the similarities and differences between the knight Virginius and the physician himself in terms of what he sees as mora...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]
