Wife of Bath

  1. 1. Wife of Bath’s Tale Holy friars have changed the world and kicked out the elves and fairies of Arthur’s time A knight found a woman walking alone and forced himself on her Queen Guinevere took over his case instead of directly putting him to death The Queen gave him a year to find out the answer to the Queen’s question “What do women want?” The knight searched around and asked many women and got many answers He comes across an old woman who knows the answer- she says she will give him the answer if he does what she says He agrees and tells the queen that women want power and equality in a relationship The knight saved his life with the answer and the old woman claims the knight as her husband The knight is very upset and the old woman says he is not a gentlemen and money is not everything The old woman tell him that she’ll set things right: he can choose her to be old and ugly and faithful or young and beautiful and flirtatious He lets her choose and she turns into a young, beautiful and faithful and they live happily ever after
