Jessie Weston and the Green Knight

From: Arthuriana
Volume 23, Number 3, Fall 2013
pp. 44-54 | 10.1353/art.2013.0033



Although Sir Gawain and the Green Knight was first printed in 1839, it drew little attention from the reading public until the early twentieth century. Today it is the most familiar of the romances, with manifestations ranging from new translations to films, novels, and comics. This article traces the story’s journey from the province of early Arthurian scholarship to comtemporary popular culture.
