Even such things as the colors used in description play a crucial part in the big picture of the entire novel. Symbolism adds a whole other level of comprehension to the story. Even from the smallest

Canterbury Tales And Marriage Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, demonstrate many different attitudes and perceptions towards marriage. Some of these ideas are very traditional, such as that illustrated in the Franklin's Tale. On the other hand, other tales present a liberal view, such as the marriages portrayed in the Miller's and The Wife of Bath's tales. While several of these tales are rather comical, they do indeed depict the attitudes towards marriage at that time in history. D.W. Robertson,

Wife Of Bath By Chaucer And Feminism In the medieval period when women were viewed as property, held to sexual double standards and considered to be little more than heir-makers, Chaucer wrote a rather biting piece that draws attention to the inequalities in standards for men and women that were supported by society. This might seem ironic coming from a man in this period, but it is not so ironic when one looks at the Canturbury Tales and acknowledges it as a fine work of satire. Chaucer attacks

If a women would be a feminist all her life, she probably wouldn't get anywhere in her life or with any man. If a woman were not to have a feministic character
