Editorial Reviews

“This comprehensive, critical edition of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is the fruit of William Vantuono's research on the famous fourteenth-century romance that praises court life with an undercurrent of satire against a declining chivalric ideal. The heart of this volume is the Middle English text, with a Modern English verse translation on facing pages and extensive notes at the bottom of the pages. A discussion of the manuscript, the anonymous poet and his other poems, the structure of the poem and its audience, themes, characterization, and purpose serves as a valuable introduction to this classic text. Vantuono's translation follows the original as closely as possible without sacrificing the poem's essential meaning and mood.” —Translation Review
