Midterm Question

In class, we have talked about the way that Chaucer portrays the female characters in the Book of the Duchess, The Knight’s Tale, the Reeve’s Tale and the Miller’s Tale. Pick a female character from one of these works and explain the way Chaucer chooses to write about them. Comment about what kind of agency they have, how their bodies are written, what their attitudes are, or anything else interesting about them.
