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. At the New Year’s feast The Green Knight shows up unexpectedly. The Green knight challenges anyone to a game and whoever accepts will strike him with his own axe and return at King Arthur’s hall to receive a blow to the neck in a year and a day. The challenge started with Sir Gawain when The Green Knight sent his Lady to go and seduce Sir Gawain so they would end up at battle.
