- 5. On 448-49, a treaty is concluded but goes awry. What are the terms of the treaty? What mischance spoils it, and what lesson about violence and human "order" do we learn thereby?
- 6. On 450-53, King Arthur is mortally wounded even as he kills Sir Mordred. What final command does he give? Why does Sir Bedivere twice betray Arthur's command? What biblical overtones does the passing of Arthur carry? (Consider the Bible's accounts of Jesus's last days on earth -- to what extent is King Arthur a Christ-like figure for his people?)
- 7. On 453-56, Queen Guinevere and Sir Lancelot meet their respective ends. Chivalry is, of course, a Christian code, but how well do religion and chivalric ideals go together in this episode? Explain with reference to the final acts and thoughts of Guinevere and Lancelot as well as the remaining Knights of the Round Table.
