In the following passage from Chaucer's General Prologue, "In all the parish not a dame stirred, Towards the altar steps in front of her, And if indeed they did, so wrath was she As to be quite out of charity," I believe that the Wife of Bath can best be described as petty. Do you agree? I don't think that she is holy, rational, or generous--Do you?
