    Abstract

    This article looks (again) at the problems presented by exegetical allegory for readers of medieval poetry. Using the example of Chaucer’s Wife of Bath and her engagement with the Pauline epistles, this historicist essay takes issue with readers, like S. H. Rigby for example, who argue that a positive reading of the Wife’s worldly positions was neither credible nor available to medieval readers.
