Random information on the term “WIFE”:

The Wife of Bath’s Tale (Middle English: the Tale of the Wyf of Bathe) is among the best-known of Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. It provides insight into the role of women in the Late Middle Ages and was probably of interest to Chaucer himself, for the character is one of his most developed ones, with her Prologue twice as long as her Tale. He also goes so far as to describe two sets of clothing for her in his General Prologue. She holds her own among the bickering pilgrims, and evidence in the manuscripts suggests that although she was first assigned a different, plainer tale—perhaps the one told by the Shipman—she received her present tale as her significance increased.[citation needed] She calls herself both Alyson and Alys in the prologue, but to confuse matters these are also the names of her ‘gossib’ (a close friend or gossip), whom she mentions several times, as well as many female characters throughout The Canterbury Tales.

Geoffrey Chaucer wrote The ‘Prologue of the Wife of Bath’s Tale’ during the fourteenth century at a time when the social structure was rapidly evolving while Richard II was in reign; it was not until the late 1380s mid 1390s when Richard II’s subjects started to take notice of how he was leaning toward bad counsel, causing criticism throughout his court. It was evident that changes needed to occur within the traditional hierarchy of King Richard II’s ensemble; Chaucer chose to address the change of events that he noticed through ‘The Prologue of the Wife of Bath’s Tale’ to illustrate the imbalance of power within the male dominated society. Women were not identified by their social status, but solely by their relations with men rather than being identified by their occupations; a female was either a maiden, spouse or widow who was only capable of bearing children, cooking and other “women’s work”. The majority of the time, women had to rely on men for their survival, solely because they were given the perception as being incompetent and subordinate to men[citation needed].
