  • The large Green Knight Barges in to the Round Table's feast and continues to challenge the noble men to a game.
  • Sir Gawain accepts the challenge of the Green Knight: anyone who chops off the Green Knight's head must receive the same strike a year and a day later.
  • "But let the respite be / A twelvemonth and a day; / Come now, my boys, let's see, / What any her can say (lines 79-83).

  • Sir Gawain travels to find the Green Knight after nearly a year since his deal.  He comes across a castle and stays there. The lady tries to seduce him and gives him a magical sash.
  • "As long as he keeps it looped around him, / No man under Heaven can hurt him" (lines 234-235)
