In the story Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the character of Sir Gawain is presented by the unknown author writing in the late fourteenth century. In the poem, it is evident that Sir Gawain is a noble knight who is respected and admired by all. Throughout Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Sir Gawain practices and learns chivalry in a brilliant way and clearly represents all the standards of a gentleman: Gawain is loyal, courteous, and honest.
