In modern days we can see examples of heroism romanticism and chivalry in our everyday lifestyle including movies such as A Knights Tale which includes many aspects of romanticism and chivalry such as having a hero on a quest and a woman that the hero must prove his love to We start out with William the son of a thatcher whom is low born and has had a dream of becoming a knight since childhood He finds an opportunity to joust in an attempt to win some money so he and his friends can have food Being a knight is one of Williams greatest dreams so he is exhilarated when he has this opportunity and trains very hard Many knights joust as sport and for honor not just for the money and the recognition Many star athletes today are renowned for their outstanding athletic abilities strength and intelligence One of the obstacles William has to conquer is to prove himself a champion before all of Europe He stumbles into an acquaintance with Chaucer and they make an agreement so William now goes as Ulrich von Lichtenstein of Gelderland and he now competes with the greatest jousters in Europe with Chaucer speaking for him An important aspect of a romantic fiction is having a hero face an obstacle such as an evil villain on the way to accomplish a great deed In this case his enemies are most of the knights that he has come up against during his jousting matches Even today modern day heroes go against good and evil and fight for their dreams and what they believe to be right The object of Williams desires in the movie is a woman of high stature He tries to impress her with his outstanding abilities with jousting and says he will win the tournament for her but she is not impressed since she is every mans desire and they all promise to win the tournament
