I have to write an analytical essay discussing how Chaucer's Wife of Bath's Tale and Prolgue present the complex interaction of body and spirit. And I am struggling on a good thesis.

From the text, I know that she definitely indulges in the bodily, as she constantly defends her sexual desires. However, I don't know how this can be tied to the spirit. She seems like a very clear character to me---she values the physical.

Help?!
