Why do you think Sir Gawain flinched when the Green Knight brought his ax down, but the Green Knight did not flinch when he was in the same position?
The prompt is referring to the long poem "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight"
I think Sir Gawain flinched because he was afraid of death. I can't think of why the Green Knight did not flinch, though. I don't want you to write a response for me, I just want a few words to jump start an idea in my head.
