Transcript of Module 1

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
The ideas of chivalry and setting oneself apart are examined by Gawain's journeys and experiences in the poem.
The Wife of Bath's Tale
This tale captures how a knight keeps his promises due to the honor and morals of the chivalric code as well as redeeming himself from failing to meet the code in the first place.
Arguments on Chivalry
The Cheetah Girls on Modern Day Chivalry
In Conclusion
All the pieces of literature we have read as well as the videos and arguements we've held has all withstood the thematic integrity of chivalry. Although chivalry has changed from the times of the Canterbury Tales to the Cheetah Girls, it all stands that the idea of a moral code has had an effect on the things we read, the movies we watch and even the way we live to this day.
What is chivalry,failure to meet ideals, and setting oneself apart?
Module 1
Through Gawain's
adventures we see
that he adheres to his
chivalric duty by
maintaining his morals as
well as setting himself
apart by volunteering to
challenge the Green Knight.
Sir Gawain met the knight,
Made him a frosty bow;
The other said, "Good sir,
A man may trust your vow."
"Gawain," said that green man, "may God protect you!
You are indeed welcome, sir, to my place;
You have timed your journey as a true man should,
And you know the agreement between us."
(2235 - 2242)
Looke who that is moost vertuous alway,
Privee and apert, and moost entendeth ay
To do the gentil dedes that he kan,
Taak hym for the grettest gentil man.
(1120 – 1123)
Due to the knight's original short-comings, he must redeem himself of his failures to meet the ideals of chivalry. He does this first by seeking his answer for the Queen, but then by keeping his promise to the Old Hag- who believes anyone is capable of being "gentil"
I really believe that chivalry is just what you want it to be and there is no real "modern day conception", just varying opinions.Chivalry isn't dead, it's just a matter if you think opening a door for someone is chivalrous.
