Chapter 21

  • When they stop to eat, Bear gives Crispin the short version of his life.
  • Bear was given to a Benedictine order when he was twelve and stayed there for seven years.
  • Now he cannot be hanged because he knows how to read, so common law treats him as a priest.
  • He ran away from the monks and became a traveling performer for ten years, and then he went to be a soldier.
  • Now he travels alone, making his living by performing.
  • He needs Crispin to join his act, though, so he starts teaching Crispin to juggle and then to sing.
  • Crispin thinks Bear is off his rocker.
