Chivalry in Gawain and the Green Knight

Research output: Contribution to conference typesPaperResearch

Abstract

Written in a Cheshire dialect, the fourteenth century poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight tells a tale in the style of a romance of King Arthur’s Court when Camelot is in its infancy and what happens when Sir Gawain accepts a challenge from a mysterious Green Knight who comes to court at Christmas Time. This discussion considers the moral dilemma that Gawain faces and how his chivalry and courage are tested to the limit in a game to be played to the death, where he has not been told all the rules
