The play King Lear by William Shakespeare is an ultimate in tragic downfall as it depicts an old King and his vassal's children deceive them and remove them from their political positions, as well as their positions as fathers. Throughout the play, Lear and the Duke of Gloucester become less and less important, due to their children's fight for power. As a result of this diminishing importance, both men experience a crippling of their masculinity. Lear asks his daughters, Regan, Goneril, and Cordelia to express their love for him, ”Which of you shall we say both love us most," (Shakespeare, I, i, 56). After he says this, his daughters Regan and Goneril confess to him all their love, telling him that no one will ever have their love like their father does.

Why would Gawain uphold the values of knighthood so high only to throw it away in such a greedy and selfish manner? Perhaps it is to show that even the most ideal knights falter in a moment of weakness. Although Gawain consciously makes a disloyal decision, it is clear that Gawain is not a bad knight.
