(Canterbury) his tale is about Virginia, a woman who has her father kill her in order to avoid falling into the clutches of Apius, an evil judge.

Virginius, a knight, has only one child, Virginia, whose beauty is beyond compare and who is endowed with all the other noble virtues. One morning, in town, a judge named Apius (or Appius) catches sight of the daughter, is smitten by her beauty and purity, and determines to have her at any cost.

The tale as told by the physician, however, is problematic as a moral example, because (although Virginia may have had to submit to the judge's rule that he live with her), there is nothing in Apius' ruling that would have forced her to yield her chastity to him. She would still have had a .   By Jove, master marchant, by sea or by land / Would get but smale argent if I did not stand / His very good master, I may say to you, / When he hazards in hope what hap will insue. a. , Webster, John, Appius and Virginia, London: printed for Humphrey Moseley, published , act 3, scene 1, page By Joves help I'l [ sic] be there. present in the Canterbury Tales, the world-old exemplum of " Apius and Virginia."

So this is the summary of my tale I have to do for a project, and I had a question about it. Virginia, whose beauty is beyond compare and who is endowed with all the other noble virtues. One morning, in town, a judge named Apius (or Appius) catches sight of the daughter, is smitten by her beauty and purity, and determines to have her at any.

What is it that makes Apius want to possess her. Would Virginia have been better off if she had been less attractive and less virtuous. What office does Apius hold. What devious method does he use to get Virginia away from her father Virginius. Who helps him. What does Virginius do to thwart Apius' plan and preserve his daughter's virtue?Author: Jeggings.

The book does a good job of illustrating how our beliefs around gender roles, sexuality and "purity" have changed over time - drawing attention to how what we may see as "common sense" beliefs today (e.g.

about women being naturally less sexual than men) are constructed, and have not remained unchanged through the ages/5. The OED also tells us that “tongue-tied” and “tongue-tie” go back to the early 16 th century; that “by Jove” is first used in the anonymous play Apius and Virginia, and that “fair play” was first written down by Henryson in about Apius is as ideal or allegorical a figure as Virginia herself, purely evil as she is purely good."" There is no denying that "The Physician's Tale" is an allegory, or that Vir- ginia, daughter of Virginius, is an allegorical figure whose name connotes the qualities that she embodies.

Virginia's actions are, as Chaucer claims, a. There are two surviving Appius and Virginia plays from around Shakespeare's time, an early one () by "RB" and a late one probably mostly by John Webster (date disputed, perhaps late s). There's an interesting PDF article by Dena Goldberg about both plays (I'm having difficulty giving the link, but if you do a Google search you'll find it).
