Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

by Anonymous

Sir Gawain.jpg

Written some time between AD 1360 and 1400 by an anonymous poet often referred to as "The Gawain Poet" or "The Pearl Poet", this work is one of the more popular pieces of the long standing Arthurian tradition.  As with all tales within this canon, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight revolves around the question of human morality.  Also in keeping with Arthurian myth, this tale blends themes of Celtic paganism and Medieval Christianity and expounds on the culture clashes of England during the Medieval period.
