1.Who Painted the Lion? Chaucer's Wife of Bath, as she describes her own life and marriages in her prologue, points out the problem that stories about women seem to have been mostly written by men: "Who painted first the lion, tell me who?" (Chaucer 816). Many of these, she opines, are negative, and the implication is that it would be different if women were writing the stories themselves. Choose 1 female character from the tales (not a pilgrim from the prologues) in The Canterbury Tales  or from any of our other earlier readings, and make a claim about whether this female figure is positive, negative, or neutral. Use only passages from the story itself (and, if you're writing on a part of The Canterbury Tales, the tale-teller's prologue) to support your position.
