The Canterbury Tales presents a multitude of learned lessons that caters to the imperfections of human nature. At first glance, the Wife of Bath 's tale appears to be apologetic towards a rapist knight, who manages to escape death through redemption and marries a beautiful woman by the end of the tale.

The Red Tent - An Unforgettable Testimony to Women’s Strength and Power The Red Tent by Anita Diamant illuminates one of the greatest testimonies to women’s strength: childbirth.

Overlooking women’s role in Biblical life is easy because there is practically nothing written by or about women. Even though Diamant’s story is fictionalized, there is truth in showing that women did exist, that there was a very important role played by women of that time period, and in showing the power and strength of women in a way that can never be forgotten.
