I enjoyed the Wife of Bath. This is mostly because of how she fits into the rigidly structured patriarchal society. The Wife of Bath can be crude and overbearing. She certainly wasn't the picture of a pious medieval woman. She crossed economic and sexual boundaries laughing all the way. It would be interesting to learn how she gets away with the things she does. Her lively spirit would also make great company.
