Write an essay in which you analyze what the green girdle represents in the story, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Why is it controversial that Gawain accepts the girdle from the Barons wife? Are there any allusions to Christian values or ideologies present in the usage of the green girdle in the story?
Make sure you are citing your sources and that you are using credible sources to support your claims. I am looking for a comprehensive, analytical response; which means I want you to be able to come to your own conclusions about why the green girdle is important to the overall understanding of the story–i.e.. what is the Universal Idea.
