CoverYoung Sir Gawain sets out to defend the honour of Camelot. Yet his first quest threatens to be his last. He must endure a blow from the axe of the mighty Green Knight, who has insulted Camelot and challenged the Knights of the Round Table. It’s a competition that may well cost Gawain his life …

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is an old English tale involving King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Part ghost story, part love story, it cleverly satirizes the chivalric world of the Arthurian court. Originally written in the Middle Ages by an anonymous author, today it is considered a classic of world literature.
