References in classic literature ?
Here the Knight met Sansjoy, the third of the Saracen brothers, and another fearful fight took place.
At last a charmed cloud hid the Saracen from the Knight's sight.
When the false Duessa discovered that the Red Cross Knight had fled, she followed him and found him resting beside a fountain.
'Now one can breathe more easily,' said the Knight, putting back his shaggy hair with both hands, and turning his gentle face and large mild eyes to Alice.
'I see you're admiring my little box.' the Knight said in a friendly tone.
'I didn't know it,' the Knight said, a shade of vexation passing over his face.
Over this champion the Disinherited Knight obtained a slight but decisive advantage.
In his fourth combat with De Grantmesnil, the Disinherited Knight showed as much courtesy as he had hitherto evinced courage and dexterity.
So the brother arose and went and looked, and he said, "I see below a score of stout men-at-arms and a knight just dismounting from his horse.
"Here ye have a knight with so lean a purse as scarce to buy him a crust of bread to munch, yet he keeps a band of retainers and puts rich trappings upon his horse's hide, while his own back goeth bare.
After eating right heartily of the good cheer, the knight brightened up greatly and vowed that he had not enjoyed so good a dinner for nigh three weeks.
He thanked the knight, therefore, in set phrase, but reminded him that a yeoman like himself might hardly offer such a dinner to a knight as a gift of charity.
