The Shipman's Tale (also called The Sailor's Tale) is one of The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer. It is in the form of a fabliau and tells the story of a miserly merchant, his avaricious wife and her lover, a wily monk. Although similar stories can be found in Boccaccio's Decameron, a frequent source for Chaucer's tales, the story is a retelling of a common folk tale: "the lover's gift regained".

The basic story in the Shipman's Tale - "The Lover's Gift Regained" - is ancient and widespread, and it remains in circulation today as an orally transmitted "dirty joke. Chaucer's version may well have been based on some oral version, or he may have drawn on one of a number of written versions. Typical of the medieval versions is that in Boccaccio's Decameron, Day 8 Tale 1. There are countless variations on this popular story. For a number of examples see Benson and Andersson, The Literary Context of Chaucer's Fabliaux.

The Canterbury Tales is the last of Geoffrey Chaucer. The Shipman's Tale Analysis. Despite its relative brevity, the Shipman’s Tale interrogates and complicates several key issues raised in earlier tales
The Canterbury Tales is the last of Geoffrey Chaucer. A rich merchant, who lived at St. Denis, foolishly took a beautiful woman for his wife. She drained his income by demanding clothes and other fine array to make her appear even more beautiful. Despite its relative brevity, the Shipman’s Tale interrogates and complicates several key issues raised in earlier tales. After the darker reaches of the Physician’s and Pardoner’s Tales, the Shipman’s Tale returns to fabliau origins, presenting a reasonably simple trick story, complicated by Chaucer in the telling.
The Canterbury Tales. Sir John is generous; he always brings some gift or money to everyone in the household, even down to the least page, and the servants love him for his gifts. Thus Sir John gives two type of gifts: when he calls the merchant "cousin," giving him a gift of prestige, and when he brings presents to the household, "they were as glad of him comyng, As fowel is fayn when that the sonne up riseth. There is a question, however, about why Chaucer assigned this tale to the Shipman. We would have expected a tale more ribald and lusty from a man of the sea who has been to many ports.
