A romance as defined by most people is or could be boy meets girl they fall in love and live happily ever after but when you look at the definition of a romance in literature its is a narrative set in a world the ordinary laws of nature are suspended And idealized heroes fight the forces of evil The narrative Sir Gawain and the Green Knight contains all the elements of a romantic novel The common romance element of good verse evil is present in the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight as appears in the two main characters of the story To begin there is Sir Gawain one of the noblest knights to serve King Arthur He was not only courageous enough to accept the challenge of the Green Knight but he was also loyal to his chance at the challenge When it was his turn to face the blow of the axe he did not avoid meeting the green knight but he went to face his opponent Although when Gawain stays with the generous lord of the castle he met on his journey he was only able to resist his seductive wifes advances to some degree Then there is the Green Knight himself He appears to be an evil mysterious being who only wishes to cause problems After proposing the challenge he allows Gawain to slash his head off but he simply picks it up and walks out No human could be capable of this He was also deceiving as he appears to be the welcoming lord of the castle that Gawain stays at while traveling to the Green Chapel The Green Knight arranges for his apparently chivalrous exterior Even though the Green Knight appears to be completely evil when it is his turn to repay Sir Gawain with a blow to his neck he barely nicks him in punishment for taking the green sash his wife offered him for
