    Wife Of Bath Feminism, or a doctrine advocating social, political, and economic rights for women equal to those of men, plays a large role in 'The Wife of Bath " sPrologue'. Describing marriage as a misery, the Wife has been married five times. Only one of her husbands she married was because of true love. The reason why she has gone through so many husbands is because her ideal husband is one who permits her to do whatever she wants. Of course, in the 1990's and even back in the 1500's, that ki...

    1,225 words
    The Equality of Women in Chaucers Wife of Bath There have been many different interpretations of what Geoffrey Chaucer stood for, but one of the most argued is that of the equality of women. As seen in several of Chaucers works, this is especially exhibited in the Canterbury Tales. Although some scholars debate that he was only writing down what he saw in his present society, others insist that he was very much an advocate for the equality of women. With his character the Wife of Bath, Chaucer i...

A woman's place was also in the home and the responsibilities of cooking, cleaning, sewing, etc. fell into their domain. Women who deviated from these cultural-set norms made for interesting characters. Chaucer's use of women and their overstepping their boundaries and typical roles in society make them most mem...

A shameless, outspoken woman, she could quite feasibly claim the most complete portrayal; appearance, behaviour and spirit are discussed - and Chaucer even delves into intimate personal history. Yet, despite her flaws being laid bare, readers - and, more significantly, Chaucer himself - respond to this character...

He uses irony and satire in varying types of narratives to reveal the components of virtually each pilgrim. Unfortunately Chaucer delegated only two of his tales to be told by women, the tales of the Wife of Bath and the Prioress. These two female characters in Canterbury Tales are not quite typical of their class and status. The Prioress's grace, elegance, affectation of speech and manner...
