The paper explains hidden meanings behind developments of the story of "Sir Gawain and Green Knight" written by J.R.R Tolkien, an allegorical legend written in the Middle Ages. The paper explores the role of allegory in this piece of literature.
From the Paper:"Upon his return home, Gawain feels a sense of extreme shame since he understands that fear for his life cost him to sin to an extent where he may never forgive himself. It seemed as an illogical step on his behalf since Green Knight had explained to Gawain that everything Gawain went through, was meant to be a joke. The moral behind this book is to never forget who you really are and that at any time you can commit a sin no matter how noble you might be."
