Sir Gawain and the Green Knight : a close verse translation( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a late fourteenth-century Middle English alliterative romance outlining an adventure of Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur's Round Table. In this poem, Sir Gawain accepts a challenge from a mysterious green warrior. In a struggle to uphold his oath along this quest, Gawain demonstrates chivalry, loyalty, and honor. This new verse translation of the most popular English romance of the fourteenth century to survive to the present offers students an accessible way of approaching the literature of medieval England without losing the flavor of the original writing. The language of Sir Gawain presents considerable problems to present-day readers as it is written in the West Midlands dialect before English became standardized. With a foreword by Daniel Donoghue, the close verse translation includes facing pages of the original fourteenth-century text and its modern translation"--Publisher's website
