Deception is one of mankind’s most versatile and powerful tools and is used nearly every day for both evil and good. Whether it be deceiving an army in battle or using exaggerations and myths to teach a child right from wrong, deceit allows one to advance his selfish or selfless intentions by providing him a source of influence on others. Such deception—the host’s wife’s dishonesty in particular—is evident throughout Sir Gawain and the Green Knight as it helps to spur the plot of the poem. Lady Bertilak’s purposeful deception of Gawain has questionable motives that highlight the theme of human imperfection and susceptibility to temptation. Temptation, developed through deception, is a useful tool for challenging and evaluating one’s integrity.

Another example from the story is when Danny has a recurring dream about a man coming to hurt him with a mallet (coincidence?). He dreamed of running down the halls as the “large dark shape, holding some sort of mallet, came for him, swinging it back and forth into the walls, saying ‘COME OUT HERE AND TAKE YOUR MEDICINE!’”. (King 291). This well supports the claim because the dark shape may be reminding Danny of his father, the night Jack got drunk and broke his arm for messing up his office. While his dad wasn’t a mallet wielding psychopath, the hotel may be trying to direct Danny’s dreams towards relating to that night in order to distance the Torrence's from each other.
