Review Text

  • By Diana Y on October 15, 2015

    This examination of the legends and literature surrounding Sir Gawain, and his place in the tales of King Arthur, offers new insights, allowing a glimpse into an earlier time, when Christianity was not the dominant force it had become at the time of the writing of the most familiar of the stories concerning knights of the fabled Round Table, and the quest of the Holy Grail. Any such examination cannot give us an "either, or" scenario; myths and legends change as they are told to new generations, and reflect the realities of the times of their fresh telling. The stories themselves are clothed in the garments, the words and ideas, called forth by the teller, and may well offer us more about the bard who shared them and his time than about the hero and his adventures. That said, the Sir Gawain of today is neither solely a knight devoted to the Divine Feminine, nor the Christian warrior who sadly falls short, and is eclipsed by others as emphasis shifts to Lancelot and Perceval. Hence, a psychological analysis of the person of Gawain as seen through literature will, necessarily, be as much an analysis of the modern perspective as anything else. Whatever his personal bias might be, John Matthews has given us the information we need to make our own decisions with regard to this well-known but little understood star of the company of the Round Table. There is valuable food for thought here whether one approaches from a Pagan, Christian, or Post-Christian standpoint.
