Perspective - IT MATTERS

"The Knight's Tale" vs. "The Wife of Bath's Tale"

"The Wife's Tale"

-Woman gets raped

-Ironically gets away with it because of another woman

-Narrator (Wife) tries to make women appear higher and mightier

-Women are kind, caring, compassionate and generous

"The Knight's Tale"

-In the tale, knight fights with other knight over a woman

-Knight himself tells this mockery of chivalry

-He is noble and chivalrous

-BUT he does not like what the other knights are becoming

-Sense of disappointment
