In Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the call is answered by the hero when Camelot's honor is taken by the Green Knight. In the hero's journey, the hero faces the call when something has been taken or lost that destabilizes the hero's home.

(313-315) This laughter is the real call because it is a weapon the Knight uses. The Green Knight is so powerful, it seems he can defeat all of Camelot with “menz words” it says “ but you've asked for folly, and folly You'll get!

Sir Gawain is one of King Arthur’s knights. It is Christmas time in Camelot, the time of the year where knights return home and people celebrate their achievements as well as the birth of Jesus. Every year they have a dinner with the king that must begin with a story before eating.

Chivalry has many features that shape a knight, however the virtues that Sir Gawain presents the most are courage and honesty. One time when Gawain showed honesty and courage is when he went to fulfill his deal with the Green Knight. The guide leading Gawain to the Green Chapel told Gawain that he should run and that no one would know about his Failure to keep his promise. But Gawain said he must fulfill his deal: “But however heedfully thou hid it, if I here departed,/ faith in fear now to flee, in fashion thou speakest,/ I should a knight coward be, I Could not be excused./ Noy, I’ll fare to the chapel, whatever chance may befall” (85.13-16). Many other knights would run but Gawain understands that he has to have courage and must be honest about going to meet the green knight and fulfill his deal.
For example, John Proctor was willing to sacrifice his good name to protect his wife. He is a husband and a father, although he made mistakes, his family is very dear. He is a person who stores moral convictions and only cares for the safety of his family and individual welfare. In addition, John Proctor's decision to tell the court about his business ironically shows his kindness. He no longer continued his relationship with Abigail, who privately terminated his sins.
Knights have always fascinated people with their daring deeds and good manners. In the Pearl Poet’s “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight,” the Green Knight arrives at King Arthur’s castle to Challenge his Knights, but no one accepts the challenge until finally, Arthur stands up. Eventually, Sir Gawain accepts the challenge and has his reputation challenged along the way.

John later admits to his affair to save the lives of his loved ones. He goes from an individual who is prideful in himself, to someone who believes that showing loyalty and respect for others is superior to being a selfish person. In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible John Proctor changes in his willingness to confront the court, admitting to his affair, and altering his perspective of himself, which demonstrates Miller’s emphasis that too much pride causes selfishness but pride is acceptable when it shows respect for others. John Proctor is unwilling to confront the court at all because he knows the legitimacy of the court and does not want to admit to his mistakes. John struggles to do what he knows is right, which is to reveal his affair to the court.
After a series of “paper wars” between the political opponents, Burr challenged Hamilton to a duel, which Hamilton accepted. According to Freeman, Hamilton accepted Burr’s challenge for a number of reasons. “In his mind, the duel; was a praiseworthy attempt to serve the common good...yet it was also an intensely personal attempt to preserve his public career. To prove to the world, and to himself, that he was a man of his word, a man of courage and principle, a leader.” (166). His explanation alone is an illustration of the sacredness of honor and the lengths politicians took to preserve their own.
At the beginning he is both the herald and the trickster, he is overall the devil figure, in the end he is Gawain’s mentor, ultimately the evil figure that turned good.Though Green Knight’s role as the mentor of Gawain is the most important. The Green Knight turned out to be the host, so he knew if Gawain would stay true to their deal, when Gawain didn’t The Green Knight cut Gawain once. Uncoincidentally, The Green Knight swung at Gawain’s neck three times and only cut him slightly the third time, just like the third time that Gawain didn’t give the girdle to the host when Gawain should have. These three times also tie into the Holy Trinity. The slight cut is representative to Gawain that he should always stay true to his word, and be chivalrous.
In order to be honorable during medieval times, a knight is expected to follow the code of chivalry. A knight is expected to display traits such as courtesy, courage, honor, and loyalty to their king. As a member of the round table in Camelot, Gawain is expected to adhere to all of these traits and accept the challenge of the Green Knight. Even though Gawain does accept the challenge, his seemingly chivalrous actions do not turn out to be very honorable, yet he does eventually survive his quest. Gawain does survive the challenge of the Green Knight, but the way that he completes it is not very fulfilling.
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a tale about the imperfections of men. In this case, these imperfections are that men try to prove that they have certain desirable qualities and they try to ensure that they get what they wish for.

The father of the narrator, Atticus Finch, has become a model of morality for many readers, as well as an example of an honest lawyer. He shows human courage, which gives us the idea that Atticus is a common and inconspicuous man he is represented from the eyes of the children, who are getting some heat from all his actions. There is an idea in the novel that children have a sense of justice and become prejudice only under the influence of others. This idea comes from a lawyer Atticus, a man of honor, who is doing good although he isn’t expected to. His arguments for heroism are “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand.

His tragic flaw was attempting to faithfully continue serving the "true" Emperor Marcos Aurelius, not considering the possible consequences he might have to face in order to return Rome to a Republic for the people. Captain John H. Miller was the captain of the American Army. He, like Maximus, does not give up very easily. Even though his mission is to save one man and risk many of his men, he presents a full effort to complete this mission no matter how senseless he believed it was.
Douglass makes sure to remind his audience that their “fathers were wise men”, and so their decision to engage in violent resistance was just as well a wise decision (Douglass 111). Perhaps the most compelling argument Douglass makes throughout the entirety of the speech is that The United State’s fathers “were peace men; but they preferred revolution to peaceful submission to bondage. You may well cherish the memory of such men” (Douglass 113). Including this points out how America’s founding fathers are cherished for the change they brought about through the means of violent resistance. If they could be celebrated for such actions, how can the enslaved be so reprimanded for taking part in the same determined fight?
Berlitak does indeed think that even though there is such a problem in Sir Gawain’s honesty, it is unimportant considering Gawain’s concern for his own life. On the other hand, he analyzes himself for his own behavior of receiving the girdle from the woman and not returning. Evaluating Sir Gawain as the ideal warrior of the era, it would disagree according to many different perspectives. When the green knight abruptly appears, Gawain bravely, but recklessly, accepts the challenge against the knights of King Arthur. Sir Gawain, while courteous and noble, he may be too immature to go through with his many adventures.
