Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
If "The Reeve's Tale" were a movie, what genre would it be, and why?
Does "The Reeve's Tale" try to make us feel sympathy for Malyne (Symkyn's daughter, who loses her virginity to Aleyn)? Or is it making fun of her? Is she just as much to blame as her father in the cheating that has occurred?
Does Symkyn's wife actually know that she's not having sex with her husband? If so, why do you think she chooses to let it continue? Who is the tale making fun of here?
