Canterbury Tales: The Wife of Bath's Tale
Answers 1Add Yours
I believe you'd find a number of supporters for the Wife of Bath's story (theory) if she were alive and telling it today. Divorce is more common than marriage, multiple marriages far more common than a marriage that lasts a lifetime. The woman believes in lying until she gets what she wants, making accusations to manipulate her husbands, and bilking the men out of all the money she can muster. It sounds a bit like reality television!
