The alliterative and epic poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, likely written in the mid to late fourteenth century, and is anonymous. In the poem, it is told about a chivalric quest. In brief, during a New Year’s Eve feast, at King Arthur’s court, the Green Knight visits there. He challenges any brave representative to a game. The Green Knight says that he will allow whomever accepts the challenge to strike him with his own axe, on the condition that the challenger find him in exactly one year later to receive a hit in return.
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.

Citizens must make the right decisions in order to maintain a healthy community for many years to come. As jury for the trial of Jack Merridew, we have concluded Jack Merridew to be guilty, for he is responsible for the deaths of Simon and Piggy. When deciding an accused person’s fate, there should be no bias involved, since members of the jury have to look at the case from multiple points of view. The factors that suggested Jack Merridew’s guilt include why he and his tribe had not used traps rather than spears, his attempt to murder Ralph, and how the leader should be the one responsible for a group's actions.
My reformation, glitt’ring o’er my fault, / Shall show more goodly and attract more eyes, / Than that which hath no foil to set it off” (Shakespeare, 1.2. 205-207). Prince Henry’s monologue in II.2 is linked to his speech in III.2, as Hal’s decision to “offend to make offense a skill” (1.2, 209), is necessary for his vow in III.2 to kill Hotspur in order to regain his lost honor. This promise is critical, as it foreshadows Prince Henry’s victory over Hotspur. Prince Henry’s speech in III.2 come at an essential part of the play.
The teams play each other and the winner advances into the next round. In the first round the one and sixteen seeds play one another, then the two and fifteen seeds play each other and so on until all the teams have played and the winners advance into the next round. On that note, the NCAA tournament has a very well deserved nickname. Most people refer to the tournament as “March Madness”. It is called March Madness because regardless of a team’s record or seeding before the tournament, once it starts all bets are off and anything can happen.
