Canterbury Tales: Wife of Bath
Chaucer portrays the Wife of Bath as if she is a hypocrite,
although, beneath the words, there is a great deal of wisdom involved.
The approach that I take, is the view that this tale is advice for
women to take. This tale teaches women that there are times one should

contradiction about the Wife
My view on The Wife of Bath is negative. I feel that this tale is
very vulgar and contains too much involvement of sex. Besides the fact
of the tales vulgarness the Wife of Bath was a well told story and the
message was well received. This story might seem hypocritical at
first, but between the lines there is some helpful advice for many
women in the world today.
