After the Friar and Summoner finish their insulting stories about each other, the Host turns to the  Clerk and asks for a lively tale. The Clerk tells a story about Griselda and her patience — a story that  depicts the exact opposite of  The Wife of Bath's Tale.  The Merchant comments that he has no wife  as patient and sweet as Griselda and tells of tale of a young wife who cheats on her old husband.  After the Merchant's tale, the Host requests another tale about love and turns to the Squire, who  begins a tale of supernatural events. He does not finish, however, because the Franklin interrupts  him to compliment the Squire on his eloquence and gentility. The Host, interested only get in getting  the next story told, commands the Franklin to begin his tale, which he does. The Franklin tells of a  happy marriage.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
