‘Sir Gawain and the Gren Knight’ ctd.

Year passes by more quickly than one could think: after Christmas comes Lent with it’s “cold cheer”, then spring, summer, “wintry pale” Michaelmas moon and soon after All Saints Day (Nov 1) Gawain starts to prepare for his journey. The king gives a huge party in Gawain’s honour and everyone invited tries to keep a brave face for his sake, although they are secretly worried. We get another elaborate description of Gawain getting ready for his journey and picking all the parts of his dress and armour with great care.
