Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Obviously the wife disapproves, and after all these ages, she finally gets her revenge. The suggestion that some of the boys had sex with her (as Gawain did not) but were then honest enough to let the Green Knight have sex with them is amusing. (Gawain simply kissed him.)

Con: The story can't seem to decide if it's humor or horror, and the result is unpleasant. It's almost all narration with little actual dialogue or action.
