Reseña del editor:

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Merchant''s Tale" is one of Geoffrey Chaucer''s Canterbury Tales. In it Chaucer subtly mocks antifeminist literature like that of Theophrastus (''Theofraste''). The tale also shows the influence of Boccaccio (Decameron: 7th day, 9th tale), Deschamps'' Le Miroir de Mariage, Roman de la Rose by Guillaume de Lorris (allegedly translated into English by Chaucer), Andreas Capellanus, Statius and Cato. The tale is found in Persia in the Bahar Danush, in which the husband climbs a date tree instead of a pear tree. It could have arrived in Europe through the One Thousand and One Nights, or perhaps the version in book VI of the Masnavi by Rumi. Though several of the tales are sexually explicit by modern standards, this one is especially so. The main character, Januarie (or January), is a 60-year-old knight from the town of Pavia, in Lombardy. Pavia was a place known for having many banks and brothels (thus revealing certain characteristics about both the merchant and Januarie)."
