Reviews of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

Overall customer rating: 5.000

Medieval Page-turner

by poetpaintographer on Sep 9, 2010

One of Merwin's best translations (unlike his Purgatorio), the tale, while deeply symbolic, stands up as a story full of surprises and suspense, together with some wonderful descriptions of the moment that draw you right in there. I find contemporaries such as Chaucer or the earlier Beowulf hard going, but this was a happy read, which I shall enjoy reading again one day.
