Storyboard Text

  • A Green Knight approaches King Arthur and his round table, and taunts him and his noble knights, and the King's nephew stands up and accepts the intruder's request. 
  • Now if you are truly as bold as the people all say, / You will grant me gladly the little game that I ask
  • Give me your gisarme, then, for the love of God, / And gladly I’ll grant you the gift you have asked to be given.”
  • Gawain accepts the knight's request and decapitates him. The knight holds his head for all to see, and tells Gawain that, he must meet the knight to be decapitated himself
  • Come to the Green Chapel, I charge you, and take A stroke the same as you’ve given,
  • "For the man who goes to battle in this green lace, / As long as he keeps it looped around him, / No man under Heaven can hurt him,"
  • On the way to the Green Knight's chapel, Gawain stays in a castle where the queen tries to seduce him, but he refuses.  He accepts a gift of a magical sash instead, and heads out to find the Knight.
  • Gawain finds the Knight and accepts his fate to be executed due to his word that he gave to the Knight. The first time the Knight swings, Gawain flinches, and gets taunted for it.
  • “You can’t be Gawain, who’s thought so good, / A man who’s never been daunted on hill or dale!
  • “I shied once: No more. You have my word."
  • "I merely feinted and made no mark, as was right, / For you kept our pact of the first night with honor"
  • Gawain finally commits to the Knight's blow which the Knight feints because he sees Gawain as a good and honorable man.  He lets Gawain free.
  • Gawain returns to Camelot with the sash.
  • “I’ve reveled too well already; but fortune be with you; / May He who gives all honors honor you well.” . . .
