This beautifully dramatized version of the late-14th-century poem offers a bonanza to the English teacher: one of the best known of the Arthurian legends, a portrait of life in Arthurian days as the Pearl poet imagined it, a baker's dozen of discussion topics about human virtue and human imperfectability-and a fascinating plot involving a challenge by the Green Knight (green is of course the color of magic), who departs Arthur's castle holding his own head, which Gawain has just lopped off; Gawain's quest to keep his word and prove his worthiness while remaining alive; and the very moral surprise ending.
Publisher: New York, N.Y. : Films Media Group, [2005], c1991
