The Canterbury Tales

In a thorough essay, compare “The Pardoners Tale” and “The Wife of Bath’s Tale” to discuss which of the two should win the contest Harry Bailey proposes at the end of the prologue. Discuss elements such as plot, setting, theme, and characterization (and others you find important) in each story. Be sure to use textual evidence (line numbers) to support your choice. You have the entire class period to do this, so take your time and make it good. I will get picky. :)
