Abstract

Two of the qualities of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight which critics single out for praise are the fine characterization and the unity given to the poem through the parallel structure of episodes. The relationship between characterization and structure in this poem is for the most part quite delicate, particularly in the case of Gawain.
