Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (Classics)

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (Classics)

by Betty Radice (Editor), Brian Stone (Editor), B . Stone (Editor)


This is a modern translation of the classical medieval poem relating Sir Gawain's romances, his conflict with the Green Knight, and return to the Round Table. The unknown 14th century author (a contemporary of Chaucer) has imbued his work with the heroic atmosphere of saga, with the spirit of French romance, and with a Christian consciousness. It is a poem in which the virtues of a knight, Sir Gawain, triumphant in almost insuperable ordeals, are celebrated to the glory of the House of Arthur.
