**Unlock the more straightforward side of The Clerk’s Tale with this concise
and insightful summary and analysis!**

This engaging summary presents an analysis of The Clerk’s Tale by Geoffrey
Chaucer, which tells the story of Griselda, a poor young woman who is
subjected to a series of trials by her husband, the marquis of Saluces, in
order to test her obedience. The text’s source material is drawn from
Boccaccio’s _Decameron_ and Petrarch’s Latin translation of the story, but
Chaucer complicates our interpretation of it and undercuts its apparent praise
of wifely obedience. Geoffrey Chaucer was the author of _The Canterbury Tales_
, a collection of stories which is one of the earliest known examples of
English-language literature and has been a key influence on subsequent
generations of writers.
