May 29, 2023

In Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, the character of the Wife of Bath has had a dramatic impact on much later plays, literature, and film across time. And for good reason. On this episode of Inquiry, you will learn why when we talk with MARION TURNER. She is the J.R.R. Tolkien Professor of English Literature and Language at the University of Oxford, where she is a fellow of Lady Margaret Hall. Her new book is THE WIFE OF BATH: A BIOGRAPHY.
