Seminar paper from the 12 months 2004 within the topic English Language and Literature reports - Literature, grade: sixty six (A-), college of Warwick (Department of English), direction: Medieval to Renaissance English Literature, 7 entries within the bibliography, language: English, summary: “I have a wyf, the worste that could be,” says the service provider in his prologue of Chaucer’s
Canterbury stories (E.1218). even though, at the start of the Franklin’s story, the
narrating voice speaks of “the joye, the ese, and the prosperitee / that's bitwixe an
housbonde and his wyf” (F.804-05). this instance indicates how little unanimity there is
among the characters of the Canterbury stories by way of marriage, be they the
pilgrims or be they the characters in the pilgrims’ stories. the purpose of the present
paper is to teach some of the ways that Chaucer represents marriage in the
Canterbury stories. i'll confer with The Miller’s Prologue and story, The spouse of Bath’s
Prologue and story, The Merchant’s Prologue and story and to The Franklin’s story. The
first 3 selected stories convey marriage in a deformed form, as a dating over which
predominance of 1 intercourse over the opposite and / or a robust financial curiosity are hovering
and bring about disagreeable incidences. The fourth story depicts wedlock as an incredible variety of
marriage, a nation of mutual connectedness within which values like persistence, fidelity,
generosity and the Aristocracy should be explored (lecture). i'm going to aid these claims with an
analysis of the stories taken every one by way of its personal. i'm going to additionally learn them as interrelated
elements of what's thought of a “marriage debate” (Hussey 135). in accordance with this
theory, the Franklin’s story is obvious because the resolution and ultimate portion of a debate which
begins with the spouse of tub and runs throughout the Clerk’s story and The Merchant’s
Tale.
