From the Paper
This paper is concerned with an examination of Geoffrey Chaucer's narrative techniques in "The Wife of Bath's Tale" from The Canterbury Tales. The Wife of Bath certainly has the qualifications to be an expert on marriage because she has been married five times. Basically, she is the Fool of the company in the traditional manner in which everyday truth is turned upside down. If practice makes perfect, then the Wife of Bath has had considerable training on the subject of matrimony. However, it could be that she needed to commit matrimony until she got it right. And so, the "Prologue" commences: "Experience, though noon auctoritee/Were in this world, is right ynough for me/To speke of wo that is in marriage:/For lordinges, sith I twelf yeer was of age--/Thanked be God that is eterne on live--/Housbondes at chirche dore I have had five/(If I so ofte mighte han wedded
