Gawain & Green Knight/Wife of Bath

Uploaded by :

A 6 page essay that contrasts and compares two "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight," author unknown, written circa 1375-1400, and "The Wife of Bath's Tale" and "Prologue" by Geoffrey Chaucer. Both works offer the modern reader insight into the worldview and values of medieval society. Both narratives uphold the values emphasized by the medieval Catholic Church; however, they do so in very different ways. No additional sources cited.
