Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages
Upon finding out that his queen is a whore (took him long enough), Arthur decides upon the only logical course of action: she has to die. Specifically, she has to be burned. Your hero, ladies and gentlemen! Anyway, he tells Gawain to go grab her so he can get down to the business of killin', but Gawain says he won't. Gawain subsequently starts crying like a little girl and runs off to his room. Seriously.
But hey, there's nothing wrong with that. Gawain's just very in touch with his emotions. Honestly, it takes a real man to weep openly in front of others.
