Canterbury Tales: The Wife Of Bath's Tale
Transcript of Canterbury Tales: The Wife Of Bath's Tale
and is overcome by this own power and lust
and rapes her. King Arthur's court find out about the knight's crime and sentences him to death by decapitation! But that is not how this story ends.... King Arthur decided to accept this proposal, but the knight was given a challenge... His challenge was to discover what women desire most and to report his findings back the the court exactly a year later. The knight felt helpless and his year was almost up, but one day he came across a large group of women dancing in the forest... The knight had no choice but to accept the offer... The knight and the hag travel to the court together and before the court, they presented his findings... What women desire most is to be in charge of their husbands and their loved ones. Although the knight's life was saved, the hag demanded his hand in marriage... They arrange a small and private wedding (we all know why...) and that same night they go to bed together... The knight is depressed (again, we all know why) and the hag questions him why. He tells her," because he could hardy bear the shame of having such a ugly lowborn wife." She then asked the knight whether he would want a beautiful but unfaithful wife, or a ugly but loyal wife... The knight ponders this, but then answers with, " I would rather trust your judgement, and to choose whatever she thinks is best." Since his answer gave the hag what she desired, she transformed into a young and beautiful woman who is also good and obedient to her husband.
