Sir Gawain was Arthur s nephew. In English stories, he is always described as a brave, honestand loyal knight.

According to the story, King Arthur and his Round Table Knights were holding their New Year sbanquet at Camelot when a tall knight dressed in green and riding on a green horse came in,holding a huge axe in his hand. He challenged a knight to cut his head off on condition that theknight agreed to have his head cut off a year after. Gawain accepted the challenge and cut offthe Green Knight s head.. The knight picked up his head and rode away.

Soon after that, Gawain set off to look for the Green Knight to receive his cut. After goingthrough many strange adventures, on Christmas Eve Gawain came upon a beautiful castlewhere he was well entertained. He agreed to stay on till New Year s Day since he was told thatthe Green Knight lived nearby. The lord of the castle made an agreement with Gawain that eachday he himself would go hunting, and Gawain stay in the castle, and in the evening they wouldexchange what they had got during the day.

For three days the lord went hunting but Gawain had to resist the temptation of the beautifullady of the castle, who gave him one kiss on the first day, two on the second, and on the thirdday three kisses and a girdle which had magic power and would save his life. Each eveningGawain exchanged the kisses with his host for animals killed in the hunt; but on the thirdevening he kept the girdle, thinking that it would protect him when he met the Green Knightand received the cut. In this way he broke his promise.

On the New Year s Day, Gawain was brought to the Green Knight. He bent over for the cut hehad promised to accept. The Green Knight raised his axe and brought it down, but he stoppedhimself at the last moment, for Gawain had moved a little because of fear. The Green Knightlaughed at him. Gawain got ashamed and angry and urged the Green Knight to finish his jobquickly. The Green Knight lifted his axe to cut, but again held it in the air. He praised Gawain fornot moving this time. The third time the Green Knight made a slight cut in Gawain s neck. Thenhe explained that he was the lord of the castle in a different form, and that the cut in the neckhad been made because Gawain was full of shame and threw the girdle away. But the GreenKnight forgives him and gave him the girdle as a gift.

高文爵士是亚瑟的外甥。在英传说里,他壹般被描绘成壹个勇敢、忠实可靠的骑士

据说,在亚瑟和圆桌骑士在卡米洛举行的新年宴会上,壹位身着绿衣、骑着绿马的高大骑士走进大厅,手里拿着壹把巨斧。他向骑士们提出挑战,问他们当中有谁敢于用斧头将他的头砍下。但谁要砍他的头,就须答应壹年后在脖子上同样挨壹斧。众骑士中只有高文接受了这壹挑战,壹斧砍下绿衣骑士的头。骑士把头捡起来,骑马走了。

不久以后,高文爵士便出发寻找绿衣骑士,去接受那许下的壹斧。他历尽千辛万苦,终于在圣诞节来到壹座漂亮的城堡,受到城堡主人的款待。高文答应多住几日,直到元旦,因为城堡主人告诉他绿衣骑士就住在附近。城堡主人与高文商定,他每天去打猎,高文留在城堡里,每天晚上交换当天各自得到的东西。

城堡主人连续三天去打猎,早出晚归,而高文在城堡里却要抵御漂亮女主人的诱惑。女主人头壹天给他壹个吻,第二天给他两个吻,第三天给他三个吻,外加壹条有魔力的腰带,系上它可刀枪不入。每天晚上高文用得来的吻交换主人猎杀的野兽,但在第三天晚上他把腰带留下了。他想自己不久会去挨那壹斧,有腰带保护,也许能免受伤害。这样,他违背了自己的誓言。

元旦当天,他如约来到绿衣骑士的住所,伸出脖子。绿衣骑士先虚晃了壹下斧头,高文略缩了壹下头,受到嘲笑。高文又又羞,催促绿衣骑士赶紧动手。绿衣骑士又虚晃了壹下,这次高文纹丝未动,受到夸赞。第三斧头落下去,只使高文受了轻伤。这时绿衣骑士向他说明了壹切。其实绿衣骑士正是城堡主人变化成的。头两斧没有使高文受伤,是因为头两天他很诚实,第三斧伤了他,是因为他私藏了腰带。高文听罢羞愧万分,把腰带丢给绿衣骑士。但绿衣骑士原谅了他,并把腰带赠给他做礼

题外话:这个故事由14世纪末的壹个无名氏用诗体写成,全诗2500余行,是英文学中的名作。中世纪的骑士道,在这个故事里可见壹斑。

经典英语故事篇3 Sir Galahad

Sir Galahad was the noblest and purest of the Knights of the Round Table. Because he is entirely free of sin, Galahad succeeded in finding the Holy Grail while many other knight of King Arthur failed.

Galahad was the son of the knight Lancelot and the lady Elaine. He was brought up by a nun until, at age 15, he was introduced to his father, who made him a knight and accompanied him to Arthur s court. There Galahad went directly to the seat called the Siege Perilous, which was reserved for the knight so pure that he would someday find the Holy Grail. All others who had tried to take the seat had been swallowed up by the earth. At the time the knights there found a great stone with a sword stuck in it. On the sword were these words: No one shall draw me out of this stone except the Knight at whose side I am to hang. And he must be the best knight in the world. Many of the knights tried, but none could draw out the sword. But Sir Galahad drew it easily from the stone.

During the search for the Grail, Galahad showed himself to be a superb knight. He succeeded in finding the holy object not because he was strong or skillful in fighting, but because he was pure in heart. After finding the Grail with two other knights, Percival and Bors, Galahad became King of Sarras. He died one year later.

加拉哈德爵士

加拉哈德爵士是圆桌骑士中好纯洁高尚的壹个。由于他清白无瑕,好终找到了圣杯。而其他大多数骑士则无功而返。

加拉哈德是朗斯洛与伊莲的儿子,由壹个修女抚养大,15岁时时见到朗斯洛,朗斯洛把他训练成骑士,带到亚瑟的宫廷里。加拉哈德见到圆桌旁的 危座 ,径直走过去坐下来。 危座 是留给能找到圣杯的好圣洁骑士的,以前曾有人尝试入座,都被大地吞了下去。此时,骑士们发现壹块巨石,巨石中插有壹把宝剑,剑上刻有铭文: 此剑属于世上的好佳骑士,只有他才能拔出此剑,佩带身边。 很多人试过,但只有加拉哈德壹人不费吹灰之力就拔出了宝剑。

在寻找圣杯的过程中,加拉哈德做的每壹件事都使他无愧于好佳骑士的名声。他的成功并非因为他有过人的力量和武艺,而是因为他的圣洁。与另外两位骑士博斯和珀西瓦尔找到圣杯后,加拉哈德当上了萨拉斯的,壹年后死去。

题外话:到底是中世纪的传奇,更看重圣洁,而不是蛮悍。与现代美电影中的英雄大不相同
