RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 48951553 LA Middle English text, parallel English translation. T1 Sir Gawain and the Green Knight : a new verse translation A1 Merwin, W. S., PB Knopf : Distributed by Random House PP New York YR 2002 SN 0375414762 9780375414763 AB "Another edition of the Middle English poem. Merwin's 'Sir Gawain' replicates the propulsive alliteration and the rhymed-quatrain stanza endings of the original, and the translation appears face-to-face with the Middle English original. A major translation of a major English, and a major horror, classic." Booklist. "A modern verse translation of the late-medieval, anonymously authored story of a mysterious green-skinned knight who puts forth a threatening challenge at King Arthur's court, which Sir Gawain attempts tomeet; presented in side-by-side Middle and modern English."
