    I have to do a presentation on this next week. Firstly I just have to do a worksheet prviding a plot summary and then highlighting some key themes and a couple of passages in the text to highlight these. At the moment I've got themes of marriage, religion and honesty. Any ideas from people who have studied it of themes and pertinent passages would be appreciated.

    Here's a link to a post on my blog, about romance and passion in the poem, but marriage comes into that too I suppose. http://englishliteraturestudynotes.b...ants-tale.html

    I recommend buying the York Notes book on The Merch's Tale because it does talk about the themes. If you like I could scan the theme part from my book and post it up too, because, you know, I have too much time on my hands

    Edit: Scanned and uploaded, if you want to take a look.

    Thanks, that page could be quite helpful. If you could scan the themes section from York Notes that would be great and much appreciated!


    P.S. Good blog you've got, see you've mentioned Hardy a bit, I'm actually reading a Thomas Hardy novel (Jude The Obscure) at the moment!

    The scanner is rubbish so the images are quite out of focus, but hopefully you can make that out.

    I haven't read Jude the Obscure yet. I mean to, though. Far From the Madding Crowd is without a doubt my favourite.
