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.

Reviews of the film:

5* - The Guardian

4* - Little White Lies

PLEASE NOTE: This event is FREE and open to all.

Organiser Cardiff BookTalk

Organiser of Cardiff BookTalk: The Green Knight

Cardiff BookTalk is a University book group with a difference – we discuss expert perspectives and readers’ ideas about the big ideas in a range of classic and contemporary fiction.

Originally established by Cardiff University in 2011, Cardiff BookTalk has been run by the School of English, Communication and Philosophy since spring 2015. BookTalkers listen to diverse interdisciplinary research topics which expand on themes in the very best classic and contemporary literature. Each speaker addresses the books from their own specialism, and this can lead to fascinating insights about the literary, social and cultural implications of the novels we read. The talks, given by University academics who are specialists in their field, as well as other expert speakers, will be followed by an open discussion session with the audience, and we want as many people to share their perspectives as possible. If you’re interested in discussing the big ideas behind great books, and want to discover new ways of looking at novels, then join us for our next session!
