im studying the poem entitled 'Aunt Jennifer's Tigers' by Adrianne Rich and in a review of this poem they say that 'poets use of the word 'chivalric' refers to tigers stalking their domain' what does it exactly mean?

  • English -

    The only thing I can think of is that the whole concept of chivalry includes knights, who were basically warriors who lived by a particular code of behavior.
