The “Franklin’s Tale” is that of a happy marriage based on perfect trust, not dominion; for the Franklin, “lov wol nat be constrayned by maistrye” (l. 92). Consider the ways in which the “Franklin’s Tale” offers alternatives to a typical courtly love relationship. Does the mutuality between Arveragus and Dorigen that is present in the beginning of the tale shift over the course of the story? What effect does Aurelius have on the relationship? Is the relationship fundamentally changed by the end of the tale? Pay attention to the way the Franklin defines the relationship between Dorigen and Arveragus.1 • You may compare or contrast this “ideal” relationship with the reality represented by the Wife of Bath (or by the Miller and the Merchant in their respective tales). To what extend do the two visions of marriage coincide? Where and how do they differ? Is the message about relationships and marriage in these works really contradictory? Your paper should be 7-10 pages in length, typed, double-spaced, and neatly presented. Consult the MLA style for writing academic papers.
