Professor instructions:
Before completing this short assignment you must:
Read Fitt 1 in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
Work through the Class Slides (under Week 12)
Use this space to wrap your head around Fitt 1 – there is a lot going on. What role does the body play in Fitt 1? Or, what bodies have a role to play? You might focus on a close-reading of one of the central characters, the rules of the game, the description of the environment (where does this all take place). Bring the text into your response – work with words. If you are feeling courageous (I know you are!) try looking up some words in Middle English.
This short assignment should be longer than your short responses. Aim for 800-1,000 words.
