  Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a late fourteenth-century Middle English alliterative romance outlining an adventure of Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur’s Round Table. In this poem, Sir Gawain accepts a challenge from a mysterious green warrior/5(3).   Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is probably the most skillfuly told story in the whole of the English Arthurian cycle. Originating from the north-west midlands of England, it is based on two ancient Celtic motifs—the Beheading and the Exchange of Winnings—brought together by the anonymous 14th century author/5(4).

  About the Book. When the mysterious Green Knight arrives unbidden at the Round Table one Christmas, only Gawain is brave enough to take up his challengeThis story, first told in the s, is one of the most enthralling, dramatic and beloved poems in the English tradition. Now, in Simon Armitage, the poem has found its perfect modern Pages: Red and gold become Gawain's colors in the poem, in contrast the Green Knight's green and gold. Because it is the color of blood, red represents life, and it also symbolizes love, the passion of Christ, and the inspiration given by the Holy Spirit.   Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a medieval ;poem written in the fourteenth century by an unknown British poet. He wrote his poem in Middle English. The poem is brilliantly interpreted into modern English by Simon Armitage. It is a mirror into the world of chivalry in the time of the Middle Ages/5().

The narrator of Sir Gawain begins his story after the fall of Troy - approximately years before the action begins. Why might he do this? Well, in order to get to Arthur, he has to go through a "history lite" version of the founding of Britain and the kings leading up to Arthur, which allows him to locate Arthur as part of a prestigious and long-lasting tradition of bravery, making him.   Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Translated by Simon Armitage (Faber, £) A couple of years ago, I recommended in this column a new translation, for Penguin Classics, of Sir Gawain . Of all the tales of the Knights of the Round Table, the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is surely the most magical. Here are thrills and enchantment, chivalry and courage, a challenge and a quest. Its hero is the greatest of all King Arthur's knights, Sir Gawain/5(43).
