The Canterbury Tales recounts the stories told by pilgrims to one another as they make their way from London to the shrine of St. Thomas Becket at Canterbury. This volume contains the Wife of Bath's Tale - a story which despite its bawdy reputation, tells a profoundly tragic tale of how women were treated in thirteenth century England. Indeed, many consider that Alison speaks with a voice that is still shockingly relevant to the lives of some modern-day women. This edition is particularly suited for High School and College/ University students. Here, the odd-numbered pages contain Chaucer's original text written in Middle English. Alongside, there is plenty of room in the wide outer margins for students to make translation notes of The Wife of Bath's Tale, or perhaps, to define unfamiliar key words. The even-numbered pages contain a new translation into modern English which differs slightly from those found elsewhere. Here, the key difference is that each line is translated separately, and thereby avoids the problem seen in some translations that words are borrowed from adjacent lines to help maintain Chaucer's rhyming structure. Accordingly, this translation adheres very closely to Chaucer's own words; although, in doing so, it may occasionally become slightly more descriptive than is usual in other translations, and that there are some sections where Chaucer's original couplets no longer rhyme. Nevertheless, this 'word for word' approach has been employed with the express purpose of assisting those readers who new to Chaucer's middle English. In some circumstances, a direct translation into modern English may not always improve a reader's understanding of the storyline. In these cases, a word or phrase will have been added to the original text - but any such additions are always clearly marked in square brackets [ ].Readers will be pleased that the present translation of the Wife of Bath's Tale has substituted any offensive references to female genitalia with much more acceptable descriptions. This volume contains the complete and unabridged text (with line numbers), an accurate translation and a personal study notebook - which means it offers excellent value for money.

In volume 1 of Jankyn's Book of Wikked Wyves (Georgia, 1997), Ralph Hanna and Traugott Lawler presented authoritative versions of three medieval texts invoked by Jankyn (fifth husband of the Wife of Bath) in The Canterbury Tales. In Jankyn's Book, volume 2, Lawler and Hanna revisit one of those texts by way of presenting all the known contemporary commentaries on it. The text is Walter Map's “Dissuasio Valerii,” that is, “The Letter of Valerius to His Friend Ruffinus, Dissuading Him from Marrying.” Included in Jankyn's Book, volume 2, are seven commentaries on “Dissuasio Valerii,” edited from all known manuscripts and presented in their Latin text with English translation on the facing page. Each commentary opens with a headnote. Variants are reported at the bottom of the translation pages, and full explanatory notes appear after the texts, along with a bibliography and index of sources. In their introduction, Lawler and Hanna discuss what is known about the authors of the commentaries. Four are unknown, although one of these is almost certainly a Dominican. Of the three known authors, two are Dominicans (Eneas of Siena and the brilliant Englishman Nicholas Trivet), and one is Franciscan (John Ridewall). In addition, the editors discuss the likely readerships of the commentaries—the four humanist texts, which explicate Map's witty and allusive Latin and which were for use in school, and the three moralizing texts, which mount eloquent defenses of women and which were for use mainly by the clergy. While Lawler and Hanna's immediate aim is to give readers of Chaucer the fullest possible background for understanding his satire on antifeminism in “The Wife of Bath's Prologue,” the “Dissuasio Valerii” commentaries extend significantly our understanding of medieval attitudes, in general, toward women and marriage.

While literary scholars have insisted on the need to understand works of medieval literature in their historical context, medieval historians themselves have rarely contributed to modern attempts to show how works of imaginative literature engaged with the conflicts and controversies of their own day. This volume brings together 25 experts in the history of fourteenth-century England and asks them to discuss one of the most famous works of Middle Englishliterature- -Geoffrey Chaucer's 'General Prologue' to the Canterbury Tales--in relation to the economic change, social issues, and religious controversies of the period. Beginning with a survey of recentdebates about the social meaning of Chaucer's work, the volume then discusses each of the Canterbury pilgrims in turn. The book should be of interest to all scholars and students of medieval culture whether they are specialists in literature or history.
