A comprehensive study guide offering in-depth explanation, essay, and test prep for selected works by an unknown poet, whose identity has been highly debated since the Middle Ages. Titles in this study guide include Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Purity, Pearl, and Patience.

As a collection of Medieval English literature, the alliterative poems each represented a high level of poetic achievement and are ranked alongside the works of Chaucer. Moreover, they contained many examples of symbolism and poetic technique and explored themes like the virtue of patience.

Each Bright Notes Study Guide contains:

- Introductions to the Author and the Work
