What is a soldier? What are ethics? What is code? What is terrorism?
Based on the anonymously authored late 14th-century Middle English alliterative poem about an adventure of Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur’s Round Table, who enters into a bargain with a mysterious green-colored knight. The story combines elements from the legend of King Arthur and the Celtic legends of the Green Knight and beheading games. The Green Knight, through an ironic representation of a modernized version of chivalry, The Green Knight tells a story about bravado, xenophobia, and sociocultural codes that questions motivations and tenets underlying both “the war on terror” and the war on the United States or Western “infidels” as it presents challenges to conventional notions of being a good soldier, honor, and marriage vis-à-vis primal desires.
