Ovid's Art and the Wife of Bath: The Ethics of Erotic Violence by Marilynn DesmondAuthor: Marilynn Desmond. Towards the end of theWife of Bath’s Prologue,the Wife bitterly complains about the codex that Jankyn, her fifth husband, owned and from which he read aloud to her every night.

As part of her complaint, she catalogues the offending texts bound in Jankyn’s volume, and among them she lists “Ovides Art” (), a version of theArs amatoria.

In the end, I think that Ovid's Art and the Wife of Bath is somewhat less successful than Reading Dido, although it is consciously a smaller and more narrowly focused book, and its lack of a bibliography is largely compensated for by its many illustrations, extensive footnotes, and excellent index.

But my minor hesitations are in part a testimony to the powerful impact of the earlier book for our reading of the. Marilynn Desmond's Ovid's Art and the Wife of Bath: the Ethics of Erotic Violence opens with an unlikely discussion of sadomasochism, but her real interest in this book is wife-beating.

In The Canterbury Tales, The Manciple’s Tale and The Wife of Bath’s Tale rely heavily on episodes in The Metamorphoses. Shakespeare took liberally from Ovid. The Wife of Bath draws on Ovid for the story of Midas, and her own character ultimately owes something to Ovid's Dipsas.

He knew of more legends and lives of wicked lives than there are of good wives in the Bible. The Wife’s digression about King Midas may also be slightly subversive. Instead of finishing the story, she directs the reader to Ovid. In Ovid’s version of the story, the only person who knows about Midas’s ass’s ears is not his wife but his barber.

The wife could, therefore, be slyly trying to. OVID IN THE MIDDLE AGES Ovid is perhaps the most important surviving Latin poet and his work of Ovid.
