Passion and Virtue in The Wife of Baths Prologue and Tale and The Rivals - Literature Essay Samples

In both Chaucer’s ‘The Wife of Bath’s Prologue and Tale’ and Sheridan’s ‘The Rivals’, the question of morality is not a straightforward one, as there is tension surrounding the purpose of marriage and traditional social expectations. However, Chaucer’s exploration of passion and whether lust and virtue can co-exist is far more controversial that that of Sheridan, who in a true Georgian fashion, only lightly challenges contemporary attitudes towards morality. In both works, the sense of resolution is limited and slightly ambiguous as the audience is left uncertain as to whether the writers’ promote virtue over passion or simply reject their protagonists’ efforts due to the inevitability of masculine authority in social hierarchy. In `The Wife of Bath’s Prologue’ Chaucer depicts Alisoun as a fiery temptress whose controversial perspective of marriage strongly challenges medieval attitudes towards virtue and godliness. This lascivious portrayal of Alisoun would have been deeply displeasing to a medieval audience who would have valued virtuous living and the avoidance of sin above all the elements in Christian teaching. Therefore, Chaucer’s Alisoun would have been a thoroughly indecent figure, as arguably for a medieval audience, the co-existence of lust and Christian values would be impossible. Throughout the novel, Chaucer presents Alisoun as an immoral figure by contemporary standards as she not only chooses to reject the authority of the Church on marriage and instead uses this same authority to justify her own lustful nature. Her controversial stand-point of marriage is presented through Chaucer’s exploration of the wo that is in marriage, whereby the wo viewed by Alisoun differs to that of the clergy. For the Church, the wo in marriage is the act of sex which despite its function as a religious sacrament, was perceived as a dirty act by the clergy which distances a person from God. Alisoun recognises that virginitee is a parfit state, however she chooses to revel in her promiscuity as she nil envye no virginitee. However, Alisoun is not an adulterer, and so her immorality is not through the fact that she engages in sexual acts with her `five housboundes’ but that she has manipulated the authority of the Church to fulfil her sexual desires and remains conspicuously childless in the process, despite recognising that God bad us to wexe and multiply. The irony of this claim clearly shows that Alisoun is indeed aware that she is unvirtuous as the only way she can justify promiscuity is by using the patriarchal system. Therefore, despite the fact that some feminist critics would label the Wife as an anti-patriarchal hero (Susan Gubar), she ironically rein forces negative medieval attitudes of the day. Chaucer immediately highlights Alisoun’s misconstrued perspective on the wo that is in marriage, which suggests that the act of sex in marriage, although is frowned upon by the clergy, despite it being necessary for child-bearing. Whereas a more modern audience would be perhaps more tolerant of Alisoun’s reasoning due to more liberal attitudes associated with free-love, Chaucer’s presentation of her is far from virtuous in keeping with conservative attitudes of the day of it being immoral, as she remains conspicuously childless, despite her assured claim that God bad us to wexe and multiply. Therefore, whereas for the clergy the wo in marriage Is associated with immorality, for Alisoun is marks the complete opposite, the idea that she lacks maistree (power), and is subjected to the restrictions imposed by patriarchal society. Whilst in `The Wife of Bath’s Tale and Prologue’, the Wife’s views are labelled as immoral, In Sheridan’s `The Rivals’, references to sex in marriage are far more implicit, as the characters labelled as immoral are those who pose some sort of challenge to the social expectations of the day. Lydia is the epitome of virginal purity at love-breathing seventeen as opposed the gat-toothed Alisoun, however her passion lies in seeking knowledge, as she languishes in her bedroom reading texts such as the The Delicate Distress and The Innocent Adulterer, a thoroughly indecent French novel frowned upon by a Georgian audience. Here, passion is not necessarily associated with sex, however the stigma attached to the longing of female education in the play is viewed with the same distaste as Alisoun’s promiscuity in the ‘The Wife of Bath’s Prologue’. Both writers’ therefore elude that passion, whether it is physical, or in the fo rm of female education, cannot coexist with virtue as virtue can only exist when there is social conformity. Sheridan presents this idea through the dialogue between the older generation in the play, Sir Anthony and Mrs Malaprop, who although are not exempt from Sheridan’s criticism, fiercely believe that learning does not become of a woman and that a circulating library will cause Lydia to long for the fruit of the tree of diabolical knowledge. Sir Anthony’s hot-headed attack on female education paired with references to the role of Eve in the Fall of Man in Genesis suggests that passion is sinful. Chaucer also refers to the Fall of Man in the Prologue when Alisoun speaks of Eva’s wikkednesse. Although these texts were written and published in different centuries, it is evident that religion always has and will continue to underpin society’s general perception of passion and lust, largely associated with immorality. On the other hand, whilst Chaucer’s depiction of Alisoun’s reasoning is flawed, her values presented in the Prologue are to a certain extent, well-justified. In the Prologue, it is clear that despite Chaucer’s portrayal of Alisoun through a medieval male lens which we would expect to condition his viewpoint of women as natural inferior to men, Chaucer appears to criticise the unjust nature of patriarchy. For example, Chaucer proposes the idea that wealth and social status does not necessarily equate to chivalric code of conduct or gentillesse. The Knight in the Prologue uses his might to rafte the ‘’maidenhed’ (virginitee) of the girl by the river. Consequently Chaucer places the fate of the Knight in the hands of the Queen, thus reversing the idea of male maistree as the queene, al at hir will’’ chose wheither she wolde him save or spille.. Therefore, whilst Alisoun is largely the subject of criticism in the Prologue, Chaucer al so highlights the immorality of men. It appears that although wealth and social status can be acquired through linage of a gentil house, gentillesse is not planted naturaleelly as a truly gentil man is one who dooth gentil dedis. Therefore, despite Alisoun’s `immorality, it is clear that her attitudes towards chivalry are commendable. This idea is supported by feminist critics such as Jackie Shead have noted that The quest and its outcome is a salutary lesson to males about not overriding women. Indeed, evidently Chaucer is not a feminist in the same was that a modern audience would perceive one to be, however he does invite the audience to question what it is to be moral or immoral by social standards and to a great degree, the line between is ambiguous. Both Sheridan and Chaucer present females as flawed characters however alike to how Chaucer appears to admire Alisoun’s rejection of medieval attitudes towards social-hierarchy, Sheridan also commends Lydia’s efforts to seek independence. Both the Wife of Bath and Lydia arguably have admirable values despite being portrayed as immoral in their society. However, the dark reality of both texts is that their efforts to obtain change is largely futile as in The Rivals Lydia compromises her independence to live in unalloyed happiness with Jack and the Knight in the Prologue obtains a wife both faire and goode despite his crime. Therefore, both of the endings of these texts reinforce the inevitability of the unjust treatment of women in Patriarchal society. Chaucer makes this apparent through Alisoun’s use of language which undermines her argument in the Prologue. Critic Elaine Treharne argues that in the Prologue, Chaucer fundamentally accomplished the depiction of a woman who is undermined by her own proxility and hyperbole, and who, furthermore, exhibits virtually all the elements of womens’ stereotypical language. Evidence of Treharne’s criticism is reflected by Chaucer’s use of hyperbole and vernacular language paired with references with ecclesiastical connotations. For example, Alisoun places great emphasis on the auctoritee of the scripture when referencing to the Apostle, the Parables of Solomon and Jobes pacience however, she undermines this authority when adopting language which reinforces her immoral nature such as my bel chose (pretty thing- a euphemism for her vagina) and For hadde myn housbonde pissed on a wal. To conclude, both writers provide an indefinite answer the question of whether their characters are immoral or virtuous however through this deliberate ambiguity, it is apparent that there is tension between the views of men and women, ordinary folk and clergy men towards morality and virtue. Both female protagonists are motivated by their desire for independence, whether it is sexually or through female education. Arguably, the immoral presentation of Alisoun is far more controversial than Sheridan’s Lydia, however interestingly both their efforts are unsuccessful due to the futility of passion and lust in patriarchal society.

Modern Penal Systems The United States Adversarial System

In contemporary societies, crime is an undeniable fact of daily life. Modern penal systems are developed in order to bring justice towards those who transgress the inviolable laws and regulations imposed by the current legislative body. In the United States adversarial system, a common quandary associated with proper administration of justice is the question of who is liable for actions committed by members of a group or organization that has been found to be associated with organized crime. In the 1970’s, in the wake of a slew of crimes perpetrated by members of the Mafia, the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act was established and signed into law by the Nixon administration. Under this act, simply referred to as R.I.C.O., leaders and members of a crime syndicate could be held on trial for criminal penalties for actions that they ordered others to perform. A major implication of this act was that an element of ambiguity inherent in the current criminal code was closed, thereby denying organized crime members immunity under the law for simply ordering the commission of crimes by lower members of the criminal conglomerate. Though the R.I.C.O. Act was established specifically in regards to racketeering, which includes the operation of illegal business through the imitation of a legitimate business, as well as the laundering of illegal funds through legitimate business, the actions deemed admissible for the establishment of a R.I.C.O. case have been expandedShow MoreRelatedThe Criminal Justice System Of The United States Constitution1184 Words   |  5 Pagesauthority to arrest, indict, try, and sentence individuals that have been accused of committing a crime.

Summary Of The Making Of Europe Conquest, Colonization...

Supposing if the fabled Tower of Babel actually existed, it ought to have been in medieval Europe. Certainly the Biblical parable of linguistic unity and its following collapse parallels all too closely with the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, with a splintered Europe emerging from its shadow. And it is the events within this particular shadow that Robert Bartlett discusses in his book The Making Of Europe: Conquest, Colonization and Cultural Change 930-1350. Bartlett explores medieval Europe, discussing the particularly crucial years of 1000-1250 A.D. when a fragmentized Europe progressed to a single distinctive cultural force; Bartlett s main thesis purports that the creation of a recognizable European cultural entity was the product of Western Christian Civilizations conquest, colonization, and indoctrination of the rest of the continent; it would subdue its rivals and create a single, and increasingly uniform European identify. Bartlett marshals his thesis by discussing the m ajor historical processes that effected and incited Christian, and more specifically Frankish and Anglo-Saxon, expansion. The Frankish and Anglo-Saxon cultures that spread from the core of Europe would conquer and colonize regions in Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean and Celtic area . This was achieved through the spread of Bishoprics, emigration of the aristocracy, innovative military technology and cultural diffusion .

Rehabilitation Programs vs. Incarceration - 738 Words

Rehabilitation Programs vs. Incarceration 5 Running Head: Rehabilitation Programs vs. Incarceration Impact of Rehabilitation Programs and Incarceration for Juvenile Offenders Discussing the Importance of Rehabilitation Program Introduction Juvenile offenders are increasing day by day regardless of the efforts to control the youth crime. It is important to understand the fact that even though the offenders fall in the young age bracket, they are still a part of human species. Human nature responds to violent actions with violent reactions. Violent reactions cause an increase in the violent actions instead of controlling them. However violent reactions may cause a temporary stop in the violent actions which may lead the authorities to believe that they have contained the crime. However, that doesnt stand true as a temporary stop does not result in a permanent solution. Currently to deal with juvenile offenders involved in the youth crime, there are two options available. The first option that prevails to a larger extent is known to us as incarceration while the second option that is slowly gaining trends is known to us as rehabilitation programs. This paper focuses on thorough analysis of both these options and the impact that they have on the offenders as well as the society as a whole. The paper also assesses the viability of these options in order to determine which of these will prove to be more effective and beneficial.

Does Source B support the evidence of source C about the suffragette campaign Free Essays

In this essay I am going to be discussing whether or not source B which is an extract from a book written in 1907 called Woman or suffragette supports the evidence given from source C which is a cartoon drawn by Bernard Partridge in 1906 about the suffragette campaign and the writers and artists opinions on the suffragettes. Firstly I am going to point out that source B which is a primary source was written by a woman and it is against women getting the franchise to vote. The thing that is very ironic about this is that at the time it seemed all women wanted the vote and wouldn’t stop at anything to get it but this one woman â€Å"Marie Corelli† didn’t think that women should have the vote and that all women should just leave the men to all the important things. We will write a custom essay sample on Does Source B support the evidence of source C about the suffragette campaign or any similar topic only for you Order Now Source C is another primary source and it is contempory to source B. The reason why this is important is because it helps towards showing that all of the people sort of had the same ideas about women’s suffrage. In source C it shows a sensible woman and what seems to be a lunatic woman. The lunatic woman was looked upon as the suffragette and she has one fist clenched and in the other hand she a flag which says female suffrage but it looks as if it is falling apart and wearing down as if they are destroying the whole purpose of campaigning for the right. Also the main reason why these sources could not be used in too much in depth study is because both sources are bias towards their own cause. Source C is obviously just trying to make the suffragettes look bad so that it makes the suffragists look better. Source B however seems to be bias towards the men and is trying to point out that women are naturally incapable of being as mature as the men. In conclusion I think than source B most definitely supports source C for one main reason. This is because they are both trying to get the point across that they don’t think women are going to get the vote and the main reasons for this are the suffragettes. One reason though why I begin to think that these source may disagree with each other is because one of the sources (Source B) believes that women will never get the vote because of the way the women are raising their children. Whereas in Source C the main reason why this source thins women will not get the vote is because of the techniques used by the suffragettes for example the main quote used on the poster is â€Å"you help the cause? Why, you’re its worst enemy!† this quote shows the hate that the suffragists had for the suffragettes and their opinion of what their actions are doing to their main cause.
