On the other hand, her age brought respect.

The poem shows the reader that nature isn’t always beautiful, and the hawk is a metaphor of humans, because humans dominate the world, as does this hawk. The poem is written with a chilling attitude to power. In the first stanza, the hawk is perched on top of a tree, awaiting nightfall. We know this because the hawk is ‘Roosting.’ His arrogance is already clear, “ Inaction, no falsifying dream” this indicates to the reader, that even when the hawk is sleeping, he does not dream ‘needless’ dreams. The hawk just has focus on killing.

The history of the legend provides a detailed past to Britain, as well as the rest of the world and has captured the attention of readers for centuries. King Arthur was a Celtic king who ended up being one of the most famous kings of Britain. He was a warrior, a knight, and a king who killed all different kinds of legendary creatures from giants to witches to monsters. He is also well known for his assembling of the Knights of the Round Table to unite people from across his land. Arthur is raised in his childhood by a wizard named Merlin.
Merlin knew he had to reveal Arthur’s identity however it was not the right time yet. In the mean time Merlin tutored Arthur teaching him how to swing, ride a horse, shoot a bow and talk t the animals in their own tongue. Years passed and Merlin decided it was time for the kingdom to discover its rightful King. Merlin went to the archbishop of Canterbury and counseled him to gather all the great Lords in London at the upcoming Christmas celebration. There at St. Paul’s cathedral, a miracle would occur that would reveal the identity of the rightful King.

In Gawain and in all the knights thoughts, if the King’s words were not followed, they were not worthy of having the privilege of being a knight. Knights had to be chivalrous, brave, gallants, intelligent, risky and all it took to keep the honesty and respect with their King. This shows how much respect and power King Arthur had. When a king is not respected or powerful, there were no such thing as loyal knights willing to fight and be killed for their king. By all these factors we can conclude that King Arthur was very powerful and was very respected by all his people and in particular by the Knight Sir Gawain.
