Description

Most teaching of and criticism on Chaucer assumes a Caucasian authorship and audience. This session will look at the responses of students from other cultures to such questions as the rape that starts Chaucer's Wife of Bath's Tale, the punishment of the rapist, and the supposedly correct answer that the old lady gives to the question of what women most desire: sovereignty over men.
