    Three young men are drinking in a tavern when they learn that Death, killing thousands in the present plague, has claimed the life of an old friend. The three vow to live for one another and to work together to kill Death. After an old man tells them that they can fi nd Death under a tree in a grove, the three go there, only to find a pile of gold florins under the tree. Fearing they might be accused of stealing the gold, they decide to bring it into town at night. They draw lots to see who will go into town to bring back food and drink for their vigil. When the youngest wins the drawing and goes off to town, the other two plot to kill him to get his share of the treasure. Meanwhile, he decides to poison the drink he is bringing back in order to kill the other two and claim all the treasure for himself. When he arrives back, the other two do kill him, but they also drink the poisoned drinks and perish. Thus, all three do indeed find Death under the tree, just as the old man had predicted. From the elements of the summary of “The Pardoner’s Tale,” into what subgenre, or subcategory of literature, does it seem to fall? A. pastoral B. elegy C. allegory D. frame story
