Some things that were reflected were rituals and knightly behavior. Two nights were in love with the same woman and would do anything to make her fall in love.
That was really good.
Good points karissa
The movie reflects the Middle Ages through the social status of many of the characters and the idea that knights are to be born of royal blood. It also shows many different life styles during that age and reflects many occupations. One way it respects our modern world is the people that work the hardest and don’t back down tend to have a lot more success than those who run away instead of working hard
Very well put!
Very wise man.
This is good
It represents the code of chilvary that was popular with knights during the Middle Ages. In a more modern sense, it shows that with hard work and dedication, you can move up to a higher social class, no matter what class you are. It also shows the value of love, something that was important in the Middle Ages and is still important now, and for fighting in true love even if it means to lose.
Those are good ones
Knights Tale has many values that reflect the Middle Ages. The movie has chivalry and it ranks people based on money. Knights Tale talks about “changing the stars” and in the modern world if you try really hard and work for what you have, you can do anything.
Good point aves !!
True it does
The knights tale reflects the value of chivalry of men from the Middle Ages. It reflects modern values with the ability to change ranks or stars if you push yourself hard enough. Being with someone you love rather than being with someone because you have to also shows modern age values.
That's a great way to relate their values.
The Knights Tale reflects in the Middle Ages that your name is what defined you as a person. It didn’t matter your values or virtues your name determined whether you were going to a Sir or a peasant. But into today society people care more about what you stand for and what you value then over your name.
It would be a weird world if that is how today’s sports were.
It shows the equipment, dialogue, and places during that time period. Also showing characters that were real; such as, Geoffrey Chaucer. Instead of Knights being more focused on honor and reputation. William had a sense of morality and higher honor. William be knighted also was something not common in medieval times. Most would have been killed or jailed for life, but with our times factored in it showed how a person can change their life if the believe enough.
That's an important change our society has made.
I like the relevance of changing our Stars.
In the middle ages they cared more about your bloodline then your skills. Even if you were highly talented you were either a pesant or a noble. Today it relates because people still enjoy watching people who are highly skilled do sports, rather then jousting.
Yeah I like the comparison.
It reflects the midevil period through chivalry and honor. When he would win the jousting tournament it was a thing of honor. When he to changed his stars/created his own destiny, it was more of a modern concept.
Honor was very important.
In the Middle Ages it showed the social classes of everyone threw out the movie and how everyone had different views for each other. On modern values it brought the modern music into the Middle Ages
The literary genius Chaucer is very well represented in the movie. I loved this character. They also do a good job of communicating the importance nobility had during the Middle Ages. The movie shows modern music and humor, making it more relevant to us today.
The Knights Tale reflects through the Middle Ages through showing it doesn’t matter what your name is. It shows how determined he was to follow his heart. He didn’t care that he wasn’t a sir and that he was a pheasant he was going to be a knight. The difference from today world is that it does matter what your name is. People want to meet the society image of being the best perfect person as possible.
That is so true!
That is a great point, that your name doesn’t matter.
Social statuses are resembled highly in the movie and are also resembled in today's world.
I agree social status makes a big difference
For one, the generally static nature of the social order; if you were a laborer, that was what you always were, unless something highly unusual occurred back then (still kinda there, but not nearly as rigid).
For two, both back then and today, everybody still fights over their betrothed or girlfriend.
For three, nobles were the only ones permitted to participate, and forging entry was considered punishable.
Throughout the movie there are many examples of day to day life from the Middle Ages. For example, they were able to pull off their candle for so long because back then it was not common for people to know what people looked like. The movie also had modern day music and modern dance moves incorporated into the traditional dances they do at the banquets.
A night tale reflects chivalry, and good morals from medieval times. Today a nights tale reflects good morals and social classes.
This is only true sometimes.
In the Middle Ages, respect was earned, not demanded. Everyone was held to a higher standard and having courage was a big part of every day life. The system was not rigged like today, back then you didn’t need an education to do great things. Unlike today where it’s hard to go places without an expensive education and a piece of paper saying you have that education
The knights tale reflects the value of Middle Ages by including only nobility by blood. One is not supposed to make it in life without a royal or knightly background. It also reflects today’s values from the aspect of love. Love is still the driving force behind most of our decisions.
Things that reflect are the knightly behaviors and what they do for a women’s love. They reflect with your blood and based on your nobility and who are you related too.
This is true.
This is a great point to bring to light.
A knight's tale reflects in today's time because women still think men in our generation are good people when sometimes they are not. Other times women think that men are still knight's.
Social statuses are in this movie a lot and in today's society they are still very relevant however you have more of a chance at gaining wealth and working your way up if you're poor in today's society because of things like public education
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
