When he returns back to the castle, he had to exchange his winnings for anything Gawain received at the castle. On the third day, Gawain did not exchange all of his winnings, which made him a liar. He did prove that he was a worthy knight but also he can not be trusted. Being a leader or a hero, you have to be an integrity person. So people can trust you and tell you to do things that others can
They believe their warriors to be humble and strong like Beowulf. In the end the hero’s from the Anglo-Saxon period and the hero’s of today's society are warriors who give everything to fight for their people. They go out in battle knowing what is expected of them. And they know the reason why they’re fighting for. The hero in Anglo-Saxon culture and literature is best defined as an honorable warrior.
The Green Knight purposefully attempted to invoke chivalry upon the knights and when Sir Gawain decided to step-up and accept his challenge, his “trawthe” to the Green Knight was sealed. The seasons quickly passed and before Sir Gawain and the King’s court knew it, December and the New Year had quickly approached. Sir Gawain eventually set off in his stunning armor atop of his horse, Gringelot, in search of the Green Knight and his chapel. Gawain knew he had to fulfill his end of the challenge because all knights are supposed to give precedence to their chivalric values of courage, honor, and in this case, fidelity to his agreement with the Green Knight. Sir Gawain’s chivalric values are also represented in the form of the pentangle designed across his shield.
He deserves loyalty from his crew because he tries to save them, he forgets about his needs, and does not actively put them in danger. Even though Odysseus puts his crew in bad situations at times. Well throughout the journey Odysseus figures out new ways to save and find his way back home. Even when his crew tries to ruin his journey he still keeps an open mind and will do anything for them. And as Mario Puzo once said, “The strength of a family, like the strength of an army, lies in its loyalty to each other.”
Jay Gatz had come from nothing really, and had earned everything he had whether it be through black market alcohol or through the war. Although Gatz seemed to have it all and then some, he did not have what he so desperately craved the most in the end, and this was Daisy. Daisy was Tom Buchanan’s wife, a rich fellow, but before she was wed to Tom, Daisy loved Gatsby, as she had met him before he had gone to the war, at the officers party her mother had thrown 5 years prior. Gatsby was a very achieved man, as mentioned before he had acquired large amounts of currency, through bootlegged alcohol. He was associated with Meyer Wolfsheim, and even showed Nick around one of the speakeasy clubs that he and Meyer Wolfsheim ran together, in attempt to lead Nick to invite Daisy over so Gatsby could be reunited with his once informal lover before the war.

In part 1, a knight by the name of Gawain defends Arthur’s Court when a mysterious green knight ridicules and challenges the fellow knights during a New Year’s feast. “The man on the horse turned himself in his saddle, ferociously rolling his red eyes about, bunched up his eyebrows, bristling with green, swung his beard this way and that to see whoever would rise” (Black, lines 342-348). When the Green Knight dared a challenge to prove their cowardly character, Gawain accepts the challenge. “When no one answered he cried aloud, “To let this task be mine” (Black, lines 349-351). He displays a well-respected act of valor and then continues on his quest to execute the Green Knight’s
The ideals of Christian morality and knightly qualities are represented by Gawain’s gold, star-shaped pentangle. The five knightly virtues that Sir Gawain expresses are: generosity, chastity, friendship, piety, and courtesy. From the beginning of the poem, Sir Gawain portrays his generosity by agreeing to cut the Green Knight’s head with an axe. He makes this decision after King Arthur fails to do so (Cathell, 2014).
He wanted them to not be afraid, and focus on what they where there to do, protect their homes and families that they love so much. All though the soldiers where scared and uncertain, Patton gave them words of encouragement to help them get the job done. General Patton’s speech brings up a lot of ideas that I think are really important. Things like; death, family, freedom, choices, unity, and doing things for the good of man. In his speech he relates these things directly to war.

The people are comfortable talking to him, and he’s comfortable talking to the
When you turn on the nightly news and all you see is the bad in the world, the hurt, and the corruption that has engulfed us as a society, it is nice to see someone do something not because they will get paid or become famous, but because they know its simple the right thing to do. This story fits the concept of a hero most similar to Bernardo’s explaination of a hero. Riggs’ saved his family and risked his life not because thats what people would expect but because he had the responsiblity to take care of them. Just like Bernardo states, he did this “because he loves them and wants to”. Riggs displayed the kind of courage it takes to be a hero.
Sir Gawain and The Green Knight In Class Writing Chivalry is the code of conduct of the medieval Knight. According to that code, a Knight was to be a loyal servant to his lord or lady and a perfect example of virtues such as bravery, courage, courtesy, honesty, faith and gentleness. Sir Gawain does not uphold the ideals of Chivalry in his adventure with the Green Knight.
The Green Knight 's behavior was somewhat hostile towards King Arthur, and still he welcomed him with open arms, "I beg you, and join us for dinner" (line 36). Who knows how the story would have changed without the invite to stay. In fact King Arthur had to invite the Green Knight because of the societal code issued to the knights. Actually that invite partially caused Sir Gawain 's adventure. Of course there is the fact that Sir Gawain volunteered to play the Green Knight 's game, once again, because of the societal expectation to be loyal to ones king and King Arthur was the one being challenged.
Chivalrous: a word to describe a knight of courtesy, generosity, dexterity in arms, and honor of God and their people. Despite the knightly chivalry of the three men, Sir Lancelot, King Arthur, and Sir Gawain showed aspects that were not considered chivalrous such as kissing the lord's wife, being disloyal to God and not keeping promises. These three men of medieval literature show complexity of chivalry and honor along with instances of betrayal and mistakes. These men exemplify qualities of chivalry and their instances of non-chivalric behavior helped them in the end. Sir Lancelot is a character from the great stories of Medieval Romance who was advanced in fighting.
