The Green Knight explained
The Green Knight (2021) Explanation :
He is the nephew of “King Arthur,” who was the king of that era.
Now this man is crowned here. After this, his head begins to give off flames.
And his head is completely burnt at first sight.
In the next scene, it is seen that “Gawain ” is sleeping at a place.
A girl named “Essel” wakes him up, coming there.
She sprinkles water on his face. As “Gawain” begins to go outside, waking up,
Then he falls down then he begins to move to his fort.
Here it is known that “Essel” likes “Gawain.”
She is a mediocre girl, while “Gawain” belongs to a king’s family.
But they both don’t care about it. Now “Gawain” moves to his fort.
Where his mother informs him about a meeting, appearing there.
Then “Gawain” directly goes to the king who says to him,
Sit with me! Now king says to “Gawain, you have grown up!
You also have the burden of responsibilities. I want to tell you that,
I may choose you as a king in the future.
Because the king has great affections for “Gawain.”
And he wanted him to have enough abilities that she may get the seat of a king.
But “Gawain” himself knew, what are his activities?
He used to be intoxicated every time. And he was not a concentrated person.
He used to spend most of his time with “Essel.”
So he tells everything to “King Arthur.”
Now queen speaks here and says to “Gawain,”
The soldiers or the members of the king’s family who were still there,
They have their past, and they became successful, moving ahead.
The crux of her words was that,
If we want, we may reach a good place, leaving the bad deed.
It means we may get our aims. So this happening is credible.
We will have to just work hard for this.
On the other side, Gawain’s mother comes on the scene.
Who goes to an awkward place. There is going on sorcery.
She writes a mysterious thing on the paper then lets it go in the air.
That note is inflamed. Contrarily, king “Arthur” is seen who is addressing his subject.
He wishes them the day of Christmas.
And he says, I know that it is the outcome of your struggles.
That we are a very calm nation. They feel satisfaction for this, hearing it.
The celebration is going to start there. Suddenly a door opens there,
And someone appears from there. His name was “The Green Knight.”
All guards and the people there become alert there, glimpsing him.
And they get ready to kill him. But the king says to the “Green knight,”
Come and listen to me! Then “Green Knight” comes and hands him over a letter.
And it is the same letter that had been burnt by Gawain’s mother.
Queen begins to read this letter, taking it.
There is written in that letter that the soldier of this court will decapitate “Green Knight.”
It will be like a game. After this, “Green Knight” will decapitate the same soldier.
Then he says to “King Arthur” that it is the only way,
That I can leave your kingdom as such.
If you want to accept this game challenge, Tell me!
Then “King Arthur,” says, I have not enough power! But I ask from my soldiers,
Now king begins to ask his soldiers,
Who is as such among you who will be able to accept this challenge? No one is able to speak.
Then “Gawain” speaks, I will move ahead and accept it. Then “Gawain,” asks for the sword from them.
Then “King Arthur” hands him over the sword. And he directly moves to “Green Knight,” taking it.
Now “Green Knight,” says to “Gawain,” kneeling down before him.
Behead me! “Gawain” immediately decapitates him.
After this, “Green Knight” says, lifting his own head,
Have you remembered? I had said to you that we would meet again after one year.
Then I will decapitate you. After it, “Green Knight” leaves, riding on his horse.
“Green knight” had left his ax there. All soldiers and kings are inspired by “Gawain” as he leaves.
And they applaud him. That he took a bold action!
He knows that “Green Knight” will come back to fight with him.
In spite of this, he did not confuse.
King takes his sword back from him. And the ax is saved left by “Green Knight.”
Afterward, all begin to praise “Gawain” too much.
He becomes popular among the people and an idea for the young kids.
But it does not remain for a long time. “Gawain” is again indulged in bad activities.
He begins to take alcoholic drinks, and his gathering is also turned into the previous one.
But the people of this place still used to appreciate him.
Because he was the only one among them who belonged to the king’s family.
And he had also performed a great adventure, decapitating “Green Knight.”
Then a man comes here and says to “Gawain,” You are sitting here,
Do you know how evil your mother is?
She performs the sorcery. “Gawain” is unable to tolerate it,
He pushes his head backward. Then he beats him violently, falling him down.
After this, he returns back to home. His mother leaves, glimpsing him.
Now “King Arthur” starts to converse with “Gawain,” which was important.
Because that time had approached when Gawain’s fight was going to be held with “Green Knight.”
Then “Green Knight” had given his words that he will now decapitate him.
And he had to go to a Green chapel for this purpose.
About which “King Arthur” begins to explain him.
But “Gawain” is scared here because he was worried about his life.
Then “King Arthur” explains to him, My son! Always remember it,
No one can kill you until your time comes.
After this, “Gawain” leaves on his horse to that place.
