The resulting quest tries Gawain's courage, chivalry, and honor; he is very surprised to find himself tested in unexpected ways and is forced to confront his one weakness.

 

You need to add 's to Gawain to indicate a possessive (they are his, Gawain's, courage, chivalry, and honor).

 

Here, "surprise" and "force" are verb forms, and as present participles they must take the form "is surprised" and "is forced."

 

You need to add "self" to "him," since this is the reflexive form, that is, he is performing the action ("find") on himself, not on someone else (which would be "him").
