In this discussion post, I would like you to think carefully about the ways one of our female narrators (the Wyf of Bath or the Prioress) establishes her authority in relation to established forms of male authority in the medieval world.
First, in about 150 words, use quotations from the poem to describe at least two forms of authority your chosen female speaker (the Wyf or the Prioress) is invoking in her prologue and/or tale.
Then, in the second part of your post (about 150-200 words) select ONE of the words from your glossary entries and use the definition you looked up to explain how the use of that word helps to support OR undermine the same speaker’s efforts to claim authority in one of the ways you have described.

While reading the Wyf of Bath’s lengthy prologue, you may find it useful to listen along to this modernized English translation that follows the text SO closely it almost offers a word-by-word translation while mostly preserving rhythm and rhyme! Sadly, she only reads the prologue, but the tale is very short in comparison, leaving you a lot less to struggle through with the dictionary and the textbook’s glosses!
