‘The Wilderness of Wirral’ in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

From: Arthuriana
Volume 23, Number 1, Spring 2013
pp. 52-65 | 10.1353/art.2013.0005



This brief discussion of Sir Gawain’s journey across the Wirral seeks to open up questions of how literature ‘thinks’ landscape and how that might feed into eco-critical debates. It deals with lost geographies and invented ones, and touches on notions of the otherworld as underpinning our responses to this one. (GR)
