SGGK Part 1 HW Questions

1. What do you make of the Green Knight? Which of his characteristics (physical or otherwise) do you find particularly significant? He’s certainly a “monster,” and he does enter a “hall”–obvious connections to something else we’ve read. What do you make of those connections? Does anything from our discussion of the other monsters find its way into your reading of the Green Knight?

 

2. What kind of king is Arthur?

 

3. Pick one of the pictures of the Green Knight on the blog and discuss how it does and does not match the description of the Green Knight in the poem.
