December 8, 2021
Cardiff BookTalk is delighted to invite you to our December 2021 event.
We will be considering the 2021 film The Green Knight (dir. David Lowery and starring Dev Patel and Alicia Vikander) alongside its source text, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, a late 14th-century Middle English chivalric romance by an unknown author.
Our expert speakers will present a 10-15 minute talk, followed by an opportunity for audience questions and discussion. To make the most of the session, you may like to read Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, available in various modern translations including the 2007 version by Simon Armitage. The Green Knight is in cinemas now and is also available on Amazon Prime.
PLEASE NOTE: This event is FREE and open to all.
