This document contains English language translations. "Our intention in these translations has been to provide close, accurate prose versions of Pearl, Cleanness, Patience, and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. The translations are based on our latest edition of The Poems of the Pearl Manuscript (University of Exeter Press, fifth edition 2007). We are acutely aware that the experience of reading a translation is a poor and feeble substitute for that of reading an original text. These translations are, therefore, offered in the hope that they will facilitate understanding of four fine poems {u2013} and will lead readers to, rather than away from, the original texts." - Preface

For students of Middle English, Andrew and Waldron's 'The poems of the Pearl Manuscript' has been the standard edition for the four 'Pearl' poems for over thirty years. With the changing needs of today's students in mind, the editors produced a complete prose translation of all four poems - the best-known of which is 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight'. The near-literal prose translations are intended to facilitate understanding of the four poems - to lead readers to, rather than away from, the original texts. The translations are based faithfully on Andrew and Waldron's fifth editon of 'The poems of the Pearl Manuscript'. This paperback edition is new to the Exeter Medieval Texts and Studies Series. -- Publisher's description
