Although feudalism-along with chivalry-would eventually fall for other reasons, including a decrease in cheap human resources due to a drop in population caused by plague epidemics and the emergence of a mercantile middle class, the Gawain author perceived a loss of religious values as the cause of its decline.

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight The poem 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight' creates a literary mid-point between Anglo-Saxon literature and Christian Literature. Agree or Disagree? In broad terms Sir Gawain is part of an expansive body of literature that typically was intended to entertain a courtly and hence selective audience. If there is any common denominator running throughout the stories, it is the idea of chivalry, a formal, high-stylized system of standards of knightly conduct. This poe

Even Whitman's literary predecessor, Emerson, chose to distinctly differentiate the soul from all nature. Whitman, however, choose

In this she was no sentimentalist. In her poem, At Cooloobah (1955), she speaks for all European peoples who have inhabited Australia: I'm a stranger come of a conquering people. This sense of Australian alienation from the land and victimization of its first peoples is dominant throughout her writing and actions.

Liberalism and Freedom Liberalism is a force that has produced change from the birth of this nation to the politics of today. Liberal tenets have been a basis of thought and action in American politics since well before the signing of the Constitution. Certainly, liberalism has had to transform in order to remain a legitimate force throughout the years. When considering this transformation, one may ask whether or not the ideas and goals of classical liberalism have been lost in the conversion in
