Compare And Contrast Sir Gawain In The Green Knight And The Canterbury Tales

Decent Essays
In the story “Canterbury Tales” tells the story about 30 pilgrims going on this religious journey, on their way to canterbury. In the story “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight” They had a New Year’s Feast then unexpecetedly a strange figure came into the Arthur’s court, as he challenged a group of leaders to strike him with his axe. And whoever gets to do it, has the opportunity to take a return blow in a year and a day. The thematic message that I’m going to focus on in Canterbury Tales is Greed & Corruption, Since so many of the villagers that went into this religious journey have used each other for their own purposes, for example the Doctor who just told lies to everyone and gave medicine not knowing if it was actually going to help or not. In the story “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight” has a thematic message which is about forgiveness and social ran since Sir Gawain wanted to be shown as a good leader, and a strong knight. There's a lot of themes represented from the chivalric code which is being honorable and noble to the court and the round table. The thematic messages that I would be focusing on would be Greed and Corruption and Loyalty from both of these stories they both have different themes and different stories, but have some kind of comparison that makes these two stories alike.
All of the three stories that we have read about are related in different types of ways, Canterbury Tales was about pilgrims going on this religious journey, which was about 30 of them.
