King Arthur Quotes in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
By Guenivere, Gawain
now to his king inclines
and says, "I stake my claim.
This moment must be mine.
"Call yourself good Sir Gawain?" he goaded,
"who faced down every foe in the field of battle
but now flinches with fear at the foretaste of harm.

or carp or quibble in King Arthur's castle?
