    These are not actually plays but I will try to answer your question. Dante saw evil as being a catastrophic impediment toward man's attainment of the divine and thus something to be taken very, very seriously Chaucer saw its human manifestations in what we would actually consider a more modern sense: as irony

    The Canterbury Tales is a bundle of novels composed in Middle English by Geoffrey Chaucer at the end of the 14th century. The tales (mostly within verse, although a number of are within prose) are told as portion of a story-telling challenge via a category of pilgrims as they drift together onto a ride from Southwark to the shrine of Saint Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral. In a long list of works, including Troilus and Criseyde, House of Fame, and Parliament of Fowls, The Canterbury Tales was Chaucer's magnum opus. He consumes the tales and the reports of the souls towards paint an ironic and condemning portrait of English culture at the moment, and notably of the Church. Structurally, the bundle bears the influence of The Decameron, which Chaucer is remarked towards possess arrive across during his former diplomatic mission to Italy in 1372. However, Chaucer peoples his tales with 'sondry folk' rather than Boccaccio's retreating nobles.
    The Divine Comedy is an epic poem written by Dante Alighieri between 1308 and his mortality in 1321. It is widely assessed the preëminent labor of Italian literature, and is perceived as one of the maximum works of world literature. The poem's imaginative and allegorical vision of the afterlife is a completion of the medieval world-view as it had devised in the Western Church. It facilitated deploy the Tuscan dialect in which it is written as the standardized Italian. It is separated into three branches, the Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso.
