Sir Gawain and the Green Knight: A 21st Century Modernization (Paperback)
*The classic tale that inspired the A24-movie The Green Knight starring Dev Patel *
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight stands as one of the earliest literary memories of Medieval England, King Arthur and his Round Table, the mythical Camelot, and those knights who called it home.
In this classic tale of chivalry and adventure, a mysterious figure interrupts a New Year's Eve celebration. Dressed all in green, he challenges King Arthur to a dangerous duel, but it is Gawain, the least of them, who is brave enough to accept the challenge on Arthur's behalf. What follows is the young knight's journey into the heart of darkness as he tries to survive the impossible.
