Summary:
"Another edition of the Middle English poem. Merwin's 'Sir Gawain' replicates the propulsive alliteration and the rhymed-quatrain stanza endings of the original, and the translation appears face-to-face with the Middle English original. A major translation of a major English, and a major horror, classic." Booklist. "A modern verse translation of the late-medieval, anonymously authored story of a mysterious green-skinned knight who puts forth a threatening challenge at King Arthur's court, which Sir Gawain attempts tomeet; presented in side-by-side Middle and modern English."
