Sir Gawain and the Green Knight as an Antifeminist Text
Though praised as a near-perfect Christian knight, Sir Gawain makes several mistakes. Among them, the gravest may be that he breaks his promise with Bercilak in the game of exchanging gifts by hiding the green belt. In the final stage, his sin is revealed and he is forgiven on the ground that he loved his own life too much. Gawain regrets what he has done, swearing that he would never forget the lesson until the end of his life. Unlike this attitude, however, Gawain never changes what he has said about women after he has been heard that the green girdle plot was planted. His curse against women is not different from the views of his days-that all women, each as the second Eve, are the agents of the devil. In this sense, Gawain is just another antifeminist hero who shares a common belief with his fellow men. The paper pursues the antifeminist aspect of the Sir Gawain by following the hero's unheroic behaviors as long as women and temptation are concerned.
