4.What is his purpose in joining the pilgrimage and what does this suggest about the knight? His purpose of joining the pilgrimage is so that he may give thanks and honor to God, because he is the one who ultimately have him the power to be such a great person and to lead good things. This, again, suggests that the knight is a virtuous and honorable man, and is one who would never say anything harmful about another person and embraces the good in people. 5. Based upon your reading of the knight's description, would you say that Chaucer is approving or disapproving of the character? Support your opinion with specific details from the poem.
Based on the reading, I strongly believe that Chaucer is very approving of the character. One of the major things that portrays his approval of the him is when Chaucer describes the knight as a “worthy man” and that he is “full worthy.” He also explains in the poem that he “never yet had any vileness said.” He even goes further to say that he was a “truly perfect, gentle knight.” Throughout the poem, Chaucer has had nothing but good things to say about the knight. All throughout the poem all he says is good things about the knight.
