Bisclavret: Fear and Loyalty
From our discussion today in section, I find it interesting to point out, that both arguments, Bisclarvet's and his wife's, both have to do with fear and loyalty. Bisclarvet was scared to tell his wife about his transformation, while the wife was scared of Bisclarvet as a werewolf. Through their fear, both become unloyal to each other. Bisclarvet doesn't tell his wife about his transformation, which causes the wife to ultimately betray him by taking his clothes and marrying another man. Through fear and betrayal, both lives have been ruined due to this lack of communication between man and wife.
