On the other hand, Sir Gawain & the Green Knight recites the chivalrous quest of Sir Gawain for the Green Knight at the Green Chapel, to sustain his life. While both these poems share some significant similarities in terms of plot, characters, theme and poetic language, they also differ in many aspects.
Dante, through his poem Inferno, illustrates that human beings ignore their values and virtues in the pursuit of trivial pleasures. They indulge in sinful activities of varying nature despite their faculty of free will, in utter neglect of morals. Thus, they land up in hell, as the punishment for their misdeed. He assigns different circles in hell for each type of sin and contends that the worst sin is the lack of self control due to which humans embark on wrong deeds. Similarly, the anonymous author of Sir Gawain & the Green Knight also emphasizes the need for virtues and values in human life, through the protagonist’s chivalry. The poem also connotes to the lack of spiritual value in humans by depicting the protagonist’s conflict of having to choose between his life and his virtues.
Another significant similarity of these works is that they use their plot to depict the social, political and intellectual life of the medieval era. While Dante does this through the narration of the lives of the people whom he meets in Hell, the other author achieves this through Gawain’s encounter with different characters during his quest. Both these works use poetic language to illustrate their themes and to create impact on the readers. Such parallels can be found in Dante’s allusion that humans will not be “absolved without repentance//nor repent and wish to sin concurrently,” in which the author conveys a profound meaning in a few words (XXVII 118 – 119). Similarly, the latter paints a vivid of a character in a couple of lines with “Fair faced, and free of fear//He sitteth o’er them all”
