What irony is in the Doctor's Tale in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales?
It is ironic that that the Physician states that "You who are fathers, and you mothers too, if you have children, whether one or more, do not forget, while they are in your care, that you must answer for their supervision," when he, in fact, is the person who kills his daughter. It is important to note that the judge never in fact stated that he would harm the daughter in any way. Therefore, it is almost hypocritical that the Physician would state that parents must protest their children, and then has the father kill his daughter. This theme of hypocrisy is consistant with other examples, such as in the Pardoner, Friar, and Summoner's Tales.
