ENGL 2210 - Early British Literature: Guinevere

Topic 5

5. Research King Arthur and his court at Camelot. Is Guinevere an important figure in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight? To what other historical/legendary/mythical female figures could the Gawain-poet be comparing Guinevere? Make an argument for the degree of Guinevere’s influence (over Gawain, the theme of the poem, the tone of the poem, etc.) in this poem. Is it a lot, moderate, or a little?
