J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit is commonly seen only as a novel about a hobbit who aids in the recovery of 13 dwarves’ stolen treasure. The group adventures to the Lonely Mountain to battle a dragon and restore the dwarves to their kingdom. But, when analyzed in a deeper sense, The Hobbit is classified as a bildungsroman where the protagonist, Bilbo Baggins, undergoes a journey of self discovery within his physical journey to the dragon’s treasure (Arslan 137).
He is changed by the experience and travels back to Camelot, “ ‘Gawain rode back swiftly through the forest of Wirral, and after many more adventures he came to Camelot’ “(116). The narrator says King Arthur, “ ‘set him at his place at the round table. And of all the knights who ever sat there, few indeed were so worthy as Gawain.’ “(116). His treasure is not physical but is well earned and still fits the hero’s journey.
Gawain showed acts of courageousness as King Arthur’s court was visited by the uninvited Green Knight and decided to complete the task which was a blow for a blow in one year’s time. Gawain used tremendous amounts of courtesy when he was the only one to volunteer out of King Arthur’s court to agree to the task given by the Green Knight. We know this because Gawain exclaims, “Such a foolish affair is unfitting for a king, so; being first to come forward,

In the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, we begin in King Arthur’s court at a Christmas feast. A stranger, who calls himself the Green Knight, interrupts the festivities proposing a game. Anyone from King Arthur’s court has the chance to have one swing to chop of the Green Knights head, but in return the brave man who does must find the Green Knight at the Green Chapel in a year’s time, and allow the Green Knight to return the favor. When no knight rushes to take on his challenge, the Green Knight insults the court by calling them cowards. "What, is this Arthur's house...
On this journey he ends up being a leader and a great expert finding clues the dwarves missed. Two changes Jackson made was Gollum and his personality and who he is, also when they describe how he is feels when bilbo takes the ring from him, which are both ineffective for different reasons.

His choice to take on the seemingly insurmountable task of traveling over the Alps in late winter was only surpassed by his decision to make the trip with war elephants.
and I have chosen to do so due to its unending trails of “what if’s” introduced in such an exciting manner. Odin, the king of Asgard, reveals that “some world man believed to be home to their gods” in the movie. Or in the same fashion “different realms”.

The green knight is a constant symbol of pagan fertility thought the poem. This is first made apparent the very first time we see the knight. “It would be hard to describe even half the fine work That was embroidered upon his [clothing and saddle-gear], the butterflies and birds, With lovely beadwork of green, always centred upon gold.” The embroideries and the knights entire appearance for that matter (possibly also with his head to toe green attire) suggest that he is in thought with nature, this is of coarse in sharp contrast to Arthurs court which he has entered which as with Gawain represents the opposite. As we know paganism centres around close ties to the natural world, and the examples of the green knights connection to nature continue
The Green Knight and Grendel are two characters that represent the face of evil and horror. Grendel is the typical monster. He is massive and malicious. On the other hand, the Green Knight is innovative and capable of living decapitated.

The three Ideas of Chivalry (How Chivalry is connected in the stories?) Have you ever been taught how to treat a lady? Have you ever been told how you should be treated?
