A mysterious Green Knight rides into Arthur’s hall and challenges anyone who is willing to a simple contest. No one in Arthur’s hall offers to stand and challenge the mysterious Green Knight even when Arthur says he will accept the challenge no one stands, then Gawain stands and excepts the challenge saying, “ I am the weakest, well I know, and of wit feeblest; And the loss of my life would be least of any;.” Gawain stepping up and saying this expresses his own individuality because he was not required to or even thought of to accept this challenge because he was not a knight. But by accepting the challenge through is individuality he shows that he is capable of living under the Knights Code and is thus Knighted. Gawain promised to seek out the mysterious Green knight and does so in a timely fashion thus keeping and conforming but this would never have occurred if it weren’t for his own original individuality. So again it’s proven that you characters and people are not always defined by their society and can live and be individuals.
The games begin when the king according to his nature refuses to eat at the New Year’s banquet until he is told a story of a marvelous knightly deed. When no one seems willing to answer to the king’s call, a Green knight rides in and roughly calls out for the leader of the “…gyng” translated as group. All the knights are frightened by the Green Knight’s gait, stature, and features. They all become quiet and cowardly. King Arthur, not ready to lose face, answers to the giant at once.
They need strength physically and mentally because no one wants a king that can be manipulated, and physically someone that can protect them. They also need integrity which is the main one because the people want a leader they can trust and have morally good values. Even though Sir Gawain and Macbeth are exceptional leaders, Beowulf makes the best leader for his people because he sacrificed his life for his people and able to inspire them as needed. The story of Beowulf begins as a young Geat warrior who is super confident and has overcome the most horrifying of feats, comes herot to deal with a treacherous monster called Grendel. Beowulf defeats Grendel with his bare hands and then must fight his mother after that has happened Beowulf leaves herot and returns to his home land and after his uncle dies becomes king, he rules for fifty years and becomes a wise and great leader.
Becket knew that there would be complications between him and the king. After receiving the title of Archbishop, “[he] started to love the honor of God.” He quickly realized this and gave up the seal of England, showing that “[his] duty to the king” was over. As Archbishop of Canterbury Becket’s loyalty shifted towards God, just as he predicted, infuriating his king. Becket begged Henry not to do this several times because “Once the miter rests on the Archbishops head, he will not be on the king’s side.” Henry tossed this aside and still made Becket Archbishop. Henry grew furious knowing that Becket was loyal to God now and not
Time passed and knights came and left, but no knight seemed to be good enough for both Edna and King Ulyi. One day, a mysterious knight approached Swaton. The knight came to the king and announced that he was here to win his worthiness: “What is your name noble knight?” said King Ulyi “Knight Levi and this is my loyal squire Tyler.” Replied the knight.
He spends his time more so running from the truth about how he fell from the tree and how there’s no war. When Finny had broken his leg, he didn’t want to accept the differences, emotional or physical. I think that in a way, the cast represents his betrayal of Gene, as well as reality. The cast makes Finny realize that he can no longer be an athlete. Finny didn’t want his spirits for the love of sports to disappear, he wanted someone to carry on his enthusiasm, he tells Gene, “Listen pal, if I can’t play sports, then you are going to play them for me.” (PG.
One such example occurred at the beginning when Gawain accepts the Green Knight's challenge. By accepting the challenge, he was not only saving King Arthur's life, but also saving King Arthur's reputation. When the Green Knight arrived at King Arthur's court, none of the knights stood up to
He takes his weapon and clobbers the head off of the green man. As the headless knight begins to leave, he tells Gawain that he must accept the blow in a year’s time at the headless green giant’s green chapel. “Armed with a golden pentangle” (Hardman), the young challenger leaves for the chapel and on the way reaches a castle, where he is taken in. Gawain spends several days making himself into a hero through his valiant deeds. A champion is a knightly gentleman with traits such as chivalry, loyalty, humility, courtesy and courage.
The community around him has welcomed him and it is not his duty to protect them, Beowulf and the civilization he was protecting knew he was capable of being king, but Beowulf seemed to be searching for validation of his morality, validity that he was doing right. I feel the main part of the text is his failure with the sword, “, the shining blade refused to bite. It spared her and the man in his need.” (105, line 1523), he now is in some sense cornered as to what to do. Being the warrior and the man that he is “he never lost heart.” (107, line 1530), and something bigger than himself came to help the warrior, Beowulf then knew something above him was on his side. It was as if then at this point he was secure in what he was doing and comfortable to move forward, not only in the battle but in his soon ruling the land.
The manager Lengel does not seem to be too strict at first but has his ways I feel. Reading the story in first person we see the day in the life at work through Sammy’s eyes. He sees three girls come into the grocery story with only swim suites on. He nick names theses girls as “plaid, big tall goon goony, and queenie.” These names come to him I feel as the way that he sees the girls and how they carry themselves. Sammy keeps his eyes on them while they are shopping and in my eyes I feel that his way of watching over them.
