What is The Green Knight About?
King Arthur’s court is visited by an uninvited guest named the Green Knight on a New Year’s Eve feast. The mysterious man challenges anyone courageous enough to risk his life for a game. The challenger will get to strike a deadly blow to the gigantic emerald-skinned stranger using his own ax on the condition that the man himself is valiant enough to take the blow in return exactly one year later. When King Arthur takes the challenge, his nephew, Sir Gawain, takes the ax himself and, with just one strike, cuts the Green Knight’s head off. To everyone’s surprise, the mysterious man is unperturbed by the deadly attack and picks his severed head and leaves after reminding Sir Gawain of the one-year condition. It marks the beginning of a long and courageous journey of the King’s nephew as he prepares to confront the gigantic emerald-skinned stranger again to fulfill his obligation.
