    The Wife of Bath begins her tale with a long dissertation on marriage in which she recounts each of her five husbands. And I agreed his views were scarcely bad: What! He had often been a Justice at assize, By letters patent and by full commission. It served him well, for, everywhere, the man, At wrestling, always looked to win the ram. A large man he was with striking eyes; No fairer burgess was there in Cheapside. He did so, and she pulled down her pants so that he could kiss her arse.

    Some people think that, in the stories, Chaucer was saying things about court politics. He agrees, and receives his freedom when he tells the queen that women want sovereignty over their husbands. Woe to his cook unless his sauces were Pungent and tasty, and every dish prepared! The Wife of Bath's Tale is itself a story of marriage dynamic. He emphasizes that this group, which he encountered by accident, was itself formed quite by chance 25— May the blissful martyr bless you indeed!

    The student in turn absolves Aurelius of his debt. He emphasizes that this group, which he encountered by accident, was itself formed quite by chance 25— Though she is a seamstress by occupation, she seems to be a professional wife. This worthy man made such use of his wits; No one knew he was beset by debts, So stately his manner of behaving, In his bargaining, and money-lending.

Once he does so, and shows that he has learned his lesson by letting his old ugly wife make a decision, she rewards him by becoming beautiful and submissive. She is his equal in looks, manners, and talent. Broad, thick-set, short in the upper arm, Off its hinges, he lifted any door, Or ran at it and broke it with his head.

But a mortal pity, it seemed to me, That on his shin an ulcerous sore had he. And I would entertain, if I knew how, Yet there is an entertainment, in my thoughts, To amuse you and it will cost you naught.

Even in the Decameron, storytellers are encouraged to stick to the theme decided on for the day. Sometimes the theme main idea of one story is followed into the next story, as a new story-teller responds or answers to a story they have just heard.

The summoner visits an old woman and issues her a summons, then offers to accept a bribe as a payment to prevent her excommunication.

The three rioters thus find Death in the form of avarice. As for consideration of her conscience, She was so charitable, tender, anxious, She would weep if she but saw a mouse Caught in a trap, if it were dead or bled. A voice he had as small as has a goat; No beard had he, nor ever looked to have; As smooth it were as it were lately shaved — I judge he was a gelding or a mare.

And certainly delighting in good sport, She was right pleasant, amiable- in short.
