Responsibility Of Marriage In Elie Wiesel's The Canterbury Tales

Satisfactory Essays
The way the question that the queen poses to the knight is related to the crime he committed is that he robbed another woman of her virtue against her will. She did not want that at all since he forced her to do it. The queen asked the knight what was it that women want since he obviously did not know or care to know.
The theme, or message, about marriage that I would say the tale conveys is that in a marriage the woman should never be below the man, but rather his equal. I do agree with this message in a certain way. I believe both partners should have equal say in just about everything but there are occasions that I believe the man has a higher say in. It is the way I was raised in a Hispanic, patriarchal, Christian way.
I do see similarities
