Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl, and Sir Orfeo

by

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl, and Sir Orfeo Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl, and Sir Orfeo are masterpieces of a remote and exotic age — the age of chivalry and wizards, knights and holy quests.

Yet it is only in the unique artistry and imagination of J.R.R. Tolken that the language, romance, and power of these great stories comes to life for modern readers, in this masterful and compelling translation.

Synopsis:

Three epic poems from 14th century England speak of life during the age of chivalry. Translated from medieval English.
