I understand your urgency and I will progress as swiftly as I can. Under what circumstances do aristocratic medieval women usually get married and what motivates these decisions? Bacchus, the god of wine, sat there, and Ceres, who relieves hunger, was there as well, and between them lay Venus, before whom, on bended knees, two young folk were kneeling, imploring her for help. The Parliament of Fowls can be found in fourteen manuscript sources and in numerous printed editions of the works of Geoffrey Chaucer.
