亚瑟王和圆桌骑士 7.2分
读书笔记 Chapter 10 果敢但并非金身不破的高文骑士

这个故事以绿骑士3次挥斧,高文骑士毫发无损,双方最终达成和解而告终。

🛑关于完人

这里面的高文骑士不可谓完人,与东方相异,也许西方世界就不相信有活着的圣人。骑士精神是一种追求,一个人可以无限接近,但不会一击即中,一劳永逸,而是一直在路上,中途有点小插曲太正常了。高尚的人也是一生都在与自身的懦弱与贪婪抗争。

是的,人无完人,在这一点上,西人更清醒,更坦率,也更宽容。。。所以。。。并没有金身不破的Sir Gawain这一说。

I must blame you a little for that—but not too much, because we all do what we have to do to stay alive.

所以,高文还活着,并用他的scar警醒世人。

I bless this scar, because to the end of my days it will remind me of what happens to those who are not completely honest.

🛑绅士们慷慨又有风度,不过小算盘啥的打piapia滴,一是一二是二。

1⃣️第三斧。

2⃣️“Now I have kept my promise, and if you try to strike me again, I shall give you as good as I get!”

3⃣️The first two times I swung my ax were for the first two days you spent in my house.

4⃣️ “To make things interesting, I would like to make an agreement with you,” the Lord continued.

“Whatever I get out there in the forest, I will give to you.

But whatever you get here in my home, you must give to me. Agree?”

5⃣️The kisses 😘

6⃣️ 互砍。

7⃣️天啦噜这还有最后一个考验!“Since you have been so honest about your mistake, I forgive you for it,” said the Green Knight.

“You have paid its price on the edge of my ax.

🛑 很有意思的逻辑谬误

这是一个看似公平,实则很不公平的游戏。同样是砍头这件事,有人只是玩,有人却要死。

高文知道这点,但他是骑士,是即使明知是死路,也要勇敢向前的真正骑士.

“Surely,” said the Green Knight, “this man, who tries to get away before he has even been hurt, cannot be the famous Sir Gawain!

Is this how I acted in Arthur’s hall?”

“Unlike you, if I lose my head, I cannot put it back,” said Gawain.

“But strike me a second time—I will not move again.”

🛑原型

书还没读完,个人猜想而已,如果真的有这么一位年少风流,风度翩翩的少年骑士,也许人们不忍心看他年少离去,杜撰了这样一个离奇的与死亡擦边的故事。

🛑摘几个高尚的句子

Then Sir Gawain was angry at himself, took off the girdle(腰带) and gave it to the Green Knight, and said,

⚜️“Cowardice and greed are my greatest enemies, and they have beaten me!

I have acted very wrongly toward you: do with me as you will.

⚜️Hiding the truth always gets one into trouble.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And now I freely offer you this girdle(腰带), so that you may have something to remember this adventure by.

And I invite you to return to my castle and to our New Year’s celebrations,

where you and I and my wife can laugh about everything we have done together, in peace and happiness.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And I will accept your gift of the girdle(腰带).

⚜️Whenever I wear it, I will let go of my pride and remember how easy it is for me to go wrong.”

⚜️He tied the girdle(腰带) closely around his body, and always wore it to remind himself of his weakness.
