Thank you dear teacher who put this on the internet for others to find! Crystal Russell Anticipation Guide 1. 2. 3. 4.

5. Men often act macho to try to impress women. There are many double standards in society regarding men and women. Chivalry is dead. If a married man/woman is unhappy he/she should seek companionship elsewhere. It is worth it to die to save ones honor.

Major Characters Sir Gawain The storys protagonist. A loyal knight to King Arthur, as well as his nephew. Gawain goes on his quest to meet the Green Knight in order to uphold his knightly values.

The Green Knight Sir Gawains main opposition in the story. He is a richly decorated knight, who has green skin and hair. King Arthur The King of Camelot. Uncle of Sir Gawain. It is at his celebration feast that the

Green Knight challenges the court to a game. Bertilak de Hautdesert The Lord of the castle at which Gawain spends his time before meeting the Green Knight. We learn his true identity at the end of the story.

Minor Characters Bertilaks wife- During the competition between Gawain and her husband, she tests Gawains integrity and honesty Morgan

le Faye (The old lady)- Powerful sorceress trained by Merlin. Assists Lady Bertilak in testing Gawain Guinevere- King Arthurs wife and Queen. Seated next to Gawain during the courts feast.

Settings Camelot The Holiday celebrations take place at King Arthurs castle in Camelot. It is here that the Green Knight challenges Gawain to exchange blows with him. Bertilaks Home On his quest to meet the Green Knight,

Gawain stays here for a short period of time. The Green Chapel The supposed home of the Green Knight. Gawain is sent here to keep his end of the bargain which he made with the Green Knight at Arthurs holiday celebration a year prior

Major Conflict Gawains struggle to decide between his duties as a knight and the worth of his own life. Examples of The Code of

Chivalry Thou shalt defend the Church. Thou shalt repect all weaknesses, and shalt constitute thyself the defender of them. Live to serve King and Country. Live to defend Crown and Country and all it holds dear.

Live one's life so that it is worthy of respect and honor. Live for freedom, justice and all that is good. Never attack an unarmed foe. Examples from The Laws of Courtly Love Thou

shalt avoid avarice like the deadly pestilence and shalt embrace its opposite. Thou shalt keep thyself chaste for the sake of her whom thou lovest. Boys do not love until they reach the age of maturity. When one lover dies, a widowhood of two years is required of the survivor. No one should be deprived of love without the very best of reasons.

No one can love unless he is propelled by the persuasion of love. Questions 1. 2. 3. 4.

Did Sir Gawain live up to the Code of Chivalry? The Laws of Courtly Love? What does Gawains faults as the hero tell us about society? If you were King Arthur would you have allowed Sir Gawain to accept the Green Knights challenge? Why? Is it more important to achieve ones

goals or learn from ones mistakes? Links to YouTube video Mrb9nj3c64A
