This study investigates interpretation of a late-fourteenth-century fictional character in both verbal and visual art of the period 1660-1810. Audiovisual analysis and diachronic afterlife studies intertwine concerning the Wife of Bath in songs, scholarship, commentary, poetic paraphrases, musical theater in London and on the Continent, paintings, and book illustrations.
Betsy Bowden is professor emerita of English at Rutgers University.
