Since her first marriage at the tender age of twelve, she has had five husbands.
The Wife not only defends her married and lusty lifestyle, while at the same time speaking of the "wo that is in mariage," but also confronts the medieval antifeminist tradition that boxes women into offensive and defeating stereotypes. And what was this antifeminist tradition of which we speak?
Well, in the late classical period, a lot of authors wrote treatises about the disadvantages of being married, particularly for men who hoped to have careers as scholars and thinkers.
Wives, these writers said, would talk your ear off, preventing you from getting any work done. Wives would demand that you make lots of money to pay for their extravagant lifestyle.
Incapable of keeping their mouths shut, they would spill your secrets to anyone who happened to walk by. Women were presented as gold-diggers, only looking to marry for money.
These negative ideas about wives gained support from St. The Wife of Bath refers to many of these texts in her Prologue. Her fifth husband, she tells us, owned a book that was an entire collection of such texts, from which he used to read to her every evening. Because of this tradition, an antifeminist stereotype of women had taken shape.
It held that women were lustful, dishonest, blabber-mouthed, greedy gold-diggers…sound like anyone you know? At one point or another in her Prologue, the Wife conforms to every single one of these antifeminist stereotypes. At the same time, however, she mounts a skilled and learned defense of marriage and sex, in which she beats the anti-marriage clerical tradition at its own game by citing numerous authoritative texts and interpreting Biblical passages.
She even does them one better by adding her own experience into the mix. Finally, the Wife has begun to seem like an actual person with feelings, rather than just a combination of negative stereotypes.
What is The Canterbury Tales: Before it was written, the screenwriters probably thought it was a new concept: And yeah, it is funny, and it is revealing. It happens when the Wife alludes to the prevalence of sexual assault in her society, or expresses heart-wrenching pain at being forced to listen to horribly insulting stories and proverbs about women.
