Question #6800268

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Q's. Please HELP!?

1.Why does Arthur allow Sir Gawain to accept the Green Knight's challenge? Why didn't he take it up himself? Why didn't any of the other knights of the Round Table accept the Green Knight's challenge? 2.Discuss the religious iconography of Sir Gawain's battle armor: the "pentangle," the five features of his physical body, and the five aspects of his personality and character. Besides all being 5 in number, what are they all supposed to represent? 3.Is Sir Gawain's shame and humiliation justified? He seems very hard on himself. Should he have been so? Why or why not? 4.If the courtly love tradition was so important, then why is the "un-courtly" behavior of the lord's wife acceptable?
