Special Sub-Topic: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
|What relation is Sir Gawain to King Arthur?|
his nephew. He gets to sit next to the Queen and is treated pretty special.
|What is King Arthur's wife's name?|
Queen Guinevere. She doesn't exactly say a lot, but she is one of the reasons why the Green Knight comes to Camelot.
|What did Sir Gawain do to the Green Knight?|
cut off his head. Even though he cut his head off, the Green Knight did not die. Instead he picked it up and climbed on his horse! Very unusual.
|How long does Sir Gawain have to wait until he meets the Green Knight again?|
one year and one day. He then goes off to meet him, after convincing King Arthur that that's what he has to do.
|Who wrote the original version of "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight"?|
|How many kisses does Sir Gawain give his host on the first day of the game?|
one kiss. Yup, he gives him a kiss that the host's wife gave him.
|What is one of the gifts that the host gives Gawain?|
a boar. The host almosts loses his life in trying to capture it.
|What does the host's wife give Sir Gawain that is supposed to make him immortal?|
a green girdle. He takes it and doesn't give it to the host, even though he breaks the rules of the game. At the end we'll see that that's going to cost him.
|The host starves Gawain's horse and treats him horribly.|
f. On the contrary, the horse is very well tended. That is one of the things that caught my attention. They really placed a huge emphasis on his horse.
|Who did the Green Knight turn out to be?|
Gawain's host. That really surprised me. It turns out to be just a test to see if Gawain is a "true knight". He fortunately passes it.
