When the mysterious Green Knight arrives unbidden at the Round Table one Christmas, only Gawain is brave enough to take up his challenge . . .This story, first told in the 1400s, is one of the most enthralling, dramatic and beloved poems in the English tradition. Now, in Simon Armitage, the poem has found its perfect modern translator. Armitage?s retelling of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight captures all of the magic and wonderful storytelling of the original while also revitalising it with his own popular, funny and contemporary voice.

A lively, alliterative translation that is a joy to read (aloud, if you can keep from getting tongue-tied); hearty thanks to [a:Robin Sloan 2960227 Robin Sloan https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1524283679p2/2960227.jpg] for passing on the quirky tradition of rereading this epic on New Year's Day; also, compliments to another invaluable bald man in my life, Dr. Robert Hamm, for first introducing me to this Arthurian legend 11 years ago.
