Even though having many differences I intend to prove that these two men have similarities as well. Immoral traits that both knights exemplify are temptation, fear, and cowardice. Even the best of men including Sir Gawain, are innately selfish and subject to thoughts reprehensible to the chivalrous role.
When examining Sir Gawain?s and the knight from the Wife of Bath differences, Sir Gawain seems to be the more noble of the two. For example, in the poem ?Sir Gawain and the Green Knight,?

He realizes that King Arthur?s life is much more significant than his
