Chaucer's Wife of Bath

A thorough and well-designed resource for older students, this lesson focuses on Chaucer's character the Wife of Bath from his classic novel, The Canterbury Tales. As a way of understanding Chaucer's complex characterization and rhetoric, this resource incorporates primary source documents about women and marriage in an attempt to explore the essential question, "Is the Wife of Bath the object of satire, the instrument of its delivery, or perhaps a combination of both?"
