Sir Gawain and the Green Knight


Ricard H. Osberg

This celebrated fourteenth-century English romance has been frequently edited and translated, but rarely have edition and translation been presented together. This new edition with facing page translation makes the poem's difficult Middle English dialect accessible in a modern spelling format and offers a verse translation in a flexible alliterative line that follows closely the syntax and meter of the original.
Contents: Introduction considers Sources, Plot, Theme, and Principles of Translation - Modern Spelling edition based on the Tolkein and Gordon text - Facing page translation in alliterative verse - Notes.
