Canterbury Tales Glog

Chaucer confirms the timely assumption that men were superior to women; as evident in his tale, the knight’s life is spared and becomes married to a beautiful yet faithful woman. While the moral of the story is that true beauty lies within, the Wife’s tale may have been a reference to her life. Chaucer notes that she is happily married to her fifth, youthful husband; we can clearly see a correlation between the two couples and why the Wife may have decided to share this tale.

THE WIFE OF BATH'S TALE

Chaucer introduces the Pardoner with a distasteful foundation that immediately makes readers dislike the character. The Pardoner is seen as a corrupt individual who contradicts his career with his beliefs and greed, and the other pilgrims are shocked of his practice. His moral tale, naturally, talks about greed; this reflects on the corruption of the Pardoner and how his superficiality drives him to continually go with his job.
