Радкова, Елена (2012) 'The Ambivalent Canterbury Tales, Going Organic Medievalwise and Pilgrims' "Сборник научни трудове от юбилейната научна конференция по повод 10 години от създаването на НВУ "В.Левски"", том I, ISBN 978-954-753-095-9


 In this paper, I start out by dwelling on some characteristics of the carnivalesque tradition and argue that Canterbury Tales is a collection of tales that can be read as being part of it. Furtheron, I dwell on a pilgrim who narrates "herself" and subsequently also tells a Tale in which her self shows through. The Wife of Bath is such a figure: in her Prologue she demonstrates that she is capable of externalising the inside of her personal behaviour. Her reductive approach to lofty subjects is also an ambivalent one: what she reduces in one aspect is reestablished in another.
