Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a poem written by a poet name unknown approximately 6000 years ago in the late 1300s in the medieval times This story was originally written in medieval literature with a real unique rhyme scheme but was translated later in time to regular English for high school students and researchers to study and read The story begins during the New Years feast in King Arthurs court Then a green knight enters asking all of the knights in the court if they would like to play a game The game is he will allow which ever knight that chooses to challenge him one swing with a battle ax to try and chop off his head but in order to play the game the accepting knight must meet the green knight one year later at the green chapel The brave knight Sir Gawain accepts to the challenge of the green knight Sir Gawain takes one swing and chops off the head of the green knight Right after the green knights head is chopped off he gets up immediately picks up his head and leaves Once a year passes Gawain sets off on a journey to find the Green Chapel He arrives at a castle in which a lord welcomes him to stay for several days Gawain only needs to stay there for three The next morning the lord makes an agreement to share everything he gets during these three days with Gawain but Gawain must agree to do the same During days one and two the lords wife tries hitting on Gawain but he only allows her to give him a few kisses At these days Gawain shares what he got to the lord for what he has hunted those days On the third day Gawain finally accepts to take a magic girdle from the lords wife but he didnt share it with the lord This magic girdle helped Gawain survive
