The Wife of Bath is the most revolutionary character in the “Canterbury Tales”. The Wife of Bath is portrayed as a woman who was witty and didn’t care about fitting in as the classic wife. Dame Alyson was aggressive when describing her feministic points of view and puts these views into action. She releases her fury towards men by taking control of them sexually. Dame constantly was antagonizing the common thought of society that a man should be in complete control of a relationship. She seemed crazy to be going against men during this time but that is what made her so revolutionary. Although she narrates herself as a woman who wants power over men she at points

By reading the book and the definitions I would say that this research article is would be kind of a mixture of both. I would say that they are trying to figure out the meaning behind it and also the cause and effect of the stressors on the different genders. This to me makes this a mixed methods type of research and I will briefly explain why below.

How far do you agree that Carol Anne Duffy presents a cynical view of love and marriage in “The Worlds Wife”?
I completely agree that in “The Worlds Wife” Carol Anne Duffy presents a critical view of love and marriage. She presents the reader with an array of relentless and unapologetically feminist poems consisting of a large number of personas, who are witheringly contemptuous of the men they have ended up with, generally inadequate, self-obsessed and immature. Each poem carrying an implicit message of feminine virtues governed by the somewhat scorn of women. However I feel that Rather than directly criticize the institutions of love and marriage, Carol Anne Duffy is criticizing the

favoritism involved in their decision of who works where. For instance, we have a second shift couple, one is the supervisor and the wife is the production worker. When it comes to jobs, she seems to always get her choice of position on the jobs. Although, when it came to bidding on a salary job along with ten other applicants she was over looked as a potential applicant. I believe because she is opinionated and speaks her mind she did not get the job. She does do a good job though.
She originally was not on the same shift as her husband, but she bid on a job to go to that shift to be with her husband. Of course, it made sense do so. Cheaper on gas, easier to work around schedules

have a much greater wealth and could influence other characters within the novel more, such as Mr. Darcy’s influence on Wickham concerning money in exchange for an agreement to marry Lydia. However, their acquaintances and communities intertwine in some way hence leading to Elizabeth and Darcy’s marriage, even with the opposition of someone of a higher rank, Lady Catherine.
The plot revolves around the need described in the very first sentence of the novel: "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." This opening statement already emphasises a Marxist perspective about money’s influence on a man’s goal to find a suitable wife and vice versa.
The driving force of the plot also centres on the very idea of class. Not only does the novel concern itself with what class the characters belong to, but also by what means, or means of production, each character gained their status.

For the main character in the novel,the character of Antoinette derives from Charlotte Brontë's repellent ,disgusting and gloomy wife of Mr’s Rochester. Rhys creates a prehistory for Bronte's character, tracing her development from a young solitary girl in Jamaica to a thoughtless and impertinent lunatic wife.By fleshing out Brontë's one-dimensional madwoman, Rhys enables us to sympathize with the mental and emotional decline of a human being.
