Description

The legendary tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table is one of the most famous folk tales in history, with Merlin the Wizard and the virtuous Sir Lancelot being known and loved by young and old alike to this day. Slightly less celebrated, however, is The Green Knight, who first appeared in the 14th-century Arthurian poem “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight”. One of Arthur’s greatest champions, he is both a judge and tester of knights, and as such is looked upon by his peers as an amiable yet terrifying and mysterious personage. One of the best known Arthurian stories, it is a classic example of chivalric romance within which The Green Knight who goes on a quest that tests his prowess, virtue, and determination in the face of great danger. The poem is written in stanzas of alliterative verse which all end in a rhyming bob and wheel, and is attributed to the unidentified “Pearl Poet”. This volume represents a fantastic reproduction of an ancient tale rewritten for a modern audience that is not to be missed by lovers of the famous Arthurian legend and related mythos. Ragged Hand is republishing this classic Arthurian poem now in a brand new edition complete with an introduction by K. G. T. Webster. First published in 1903 and translated by Charlton Miner Lewis.
