A mysterious knight all in green arrives at King Arthur’s court and issues a bizarre challenge. Gawain answers the knightbut at what cost?
This new translation keeps all the poetic power of the original’s extraordinary alliteration. In doing so it brings the saga vividly to life in a manner that demands to be heard. One of the greatest stories of English literature from any period, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a magical medieval combination of the epic and the uncanny.
