Arthurising the Wife of Bath: Two Chaucerian Adaptations

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This essay considers the Arthurian setting (or its absence) of The Wife of Bath’s Tale in relation to 1999’s S4C animated Canterbury Tales and 2003’s BBC Canterbury Tales. In doing so, it considers the significance of the Arthurian frame for a modern viewer, and how viewer interpretation of the Tale is effectively guided by this frame.
