The Canterbury Tales The Merchant's Prologue

The merchant comments on the previous tale by telling of his wife's horrible cruelty. He believes that all married men must live with sorrow and misfortune. Other pilgrims, who have been recently married, ask the merchant to tell them a tale of such curses, since the host believes him to be knowledgeable in the art of marriage.
