    Knights are one of the most mistaken figures of the medieval era due to fairytales and over exaggerated fiction novels. When medieval knights roamed the earth, it was known that they were only human and, like humans, had faults. These knights did not always live up to the standards designated by society. However, in The Canterbury Tales, the knight is revealed as a character that would now be considered a knight in shining armor, a perfect role model in how he acts and what he does. Modern day people

    the character of the Knight and the other characters that appear in the Knight’s story, Chaucer exhibits chivalry, and those who love and embody it. However, throughout the tale, there is the question as to whether chivalry is as honorable as it sounds, or if Chaucer is mocking those who strive towards it.

    given the respect that they deserve. Women were put in high regards back in King Arthur’s day. Now they are not as respected as they should be. When you look at the cases of rape, assault, and battery you see just why the Knights were so honorable. There are some very honorable men in the world that treat women with respect and for that I commend them, but there are those who give men a bad name.

    Canterbury Tales, the Knight begins the tale-telling. Although straws were picked, and the order left to "aventure," or "cas," Harry Bailey seems to have pushed fate. The Knight represents the highest caste in the social hierarchy of the fourteenth century, those who rule, those who pray, and those who work. Assuming that the worldly knight would tell the most entertaining and understandable story (that would shorten their pilgrimage to St. Thomas Becket), Harry tells the Knight to begin. The Knight's
