Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
The first bedroom encounter concludes with a kiss.
Conflict of perception (Gawain vs. L. Bertilak)
Virtue v. Journey (Which is the real obstacle?)
*The conflict of courtesy
“On the bushes…and he crashed/ At a line of men…the hoariest,/ Fiercest, hugest boar in the world,/ charging out, grunting.”
“Hitting him over and over/ but hurting him nothing”
Wild boarswild and fierce, do not flee from fighting, fight until killed
“Force and threats are indecent…”
“Unwilling gifts are given in vain…”
A knight’s reputation relies most on “loyalty to love.”
“So she tested him, pushed and probed,/ trying to tempt him, pretending love/”
Gawain desires to leave to ensure a timely arrival at the green chapel.
Lord Bertilak assures him, and aims to detain Gawain; “he had tricks to try.”
