    Enchanting translation that made me love words again The cadence and rhythm Armitage employed gave life to the modern English rather than direct translation The Introduction laid out precisely what he would do and why he made the choice he did to preserve the beauty of the poetry, both the alliterative Anglo Saxon and the breakout stanzas of continental rhyming And I fell in love with language again I found myself speaking aloud or mouthing them to feel the words tumbling out For that joy, Enchanting translation that made me love words again The cadence and rhythm Armitage employed gave life to the modern English rather than direct translation The Introduction laid out precisely what he would do and why he made the choice he did to preserve the beauty of the poetry, both the alliterative Anglo Saxon and the breakout stanzas of continental rhyming And I fell in love with language again I found myself speaking aloud or mouthing them to feel the words tumbling out For that joy, I am grateful again As a selection for my Yuletide reading, I was most fortunate The tale itself is quite simple, but filled with so many tidbits It is a heroic story as Sir ...

    The season if not of mellow fruitfulness than of frost and fog brings this back to me with the childhood memory of going to school in a proper pea souper, every familiar landmark lost, only the tarmac footpath remained solid beneath my childish feet, occasionally a hut would burst out of the milkiness to demonstrate that I was making progress My little quest however did not take a year and a day, as all self respecting quests must.Alas the language is beyond me, I am comfortable with Chaucer t The season if not of mellow fruitfulness than of frost and fog brings this back to me with the childhood memory of going to school in a proper pea souper, every familiar la...

    One of the best of the classic Arthurian tales Gawain is presented a bit differently here from many of the other ones Usually he s a bit of a braggart and kind of a jerk, especially to women, but here he is presented as the perfect exemplar of courtoisie He s also a bit young and still untried, so maybe that explains it for those who want to be able to have a grand unified theory of Arthuriana Anyway, you probably all know the story Arthur is about to have a New Year s feast, but accordin One of the best of the classic Arthurian tales Gawain is presented a bit differently here from many of the other ones Usually he s a bit of a braggart and kind of a jerk, especially to women, but here he is presented as the perfect exemplar of courtoisie He s also a bit young and still untried, so maybe that explains it for those who want to be able to have a grand unified theory of Arthuriana Anyway, you probably all know the story Arthur is about to have a New Year s feast, but according to tradition is waiting for some marvel to occur Right on cue in trots the Green Knight on his horse, a giant of a man who proceeds to trash the reputation of the entire court and dare someone to cut off his head as long as he gets to return the favour No one mak...

    I gave this three stars because it whetted my sapiosexuality for view spoiler Morgan la Fay hide spoiler , because seriously, if you hate women, there s only three things you can do to tide me over with your writing not write about them, be glorious at everything else, or include a female character who for all your fancy rhythms obviously scares the living shit out of you In the words of the immortal Shelley, if I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other, and with twenty lines out I gave this three stars because it whetted my sapiosexuality for view spoiler Morgan la Fay hide spoiler , because seriously, if you hate women, there s only three things you can do to tide me over with your writing not write about them, be glorious at everything else, or include a female character who for all your fancy rhythms obviously scares the living shit out of you In the words of the immortal Shelley, if I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other, and with twenty lines out of 2530 in this Arthurian tale, a little goes a long way.Moving beyond the author s obvious issues andtowards the stuffs of academia, it s hard to be impressed by this if one encounters Beowulf and The Heptameron first The former has it beat in terms of pure strength of utterance, while the latter has it beat in, well, everything else It s the curse of encountering the critique before the critiqued, and while SGatGK has got a lovely sense of nature and hunt...

    I first read this in 1975 I ve read it several times since The translation Marie Borroff is good I am entirely taken in by the parallel structures in the story Sir Gawain comes off as a wonderfully human character in a type of literature not known for well developed characters.

    An enjoyable translation Yes, he dozes in a daze, dreams and mutterslike a mournful man with his mind on dark matters how destiny might deal him a death blow on the daywhen he grapples with the giant in the green chapel of how the strike of the axe must be suffered without struggle.But sensing her presence there he surfaces from sleep,drags himself out of his dreams to address her.Laughing warmly she walks towards himand finds his face with the friendliest kiss.In a worthy style he welcomes the An enjoy...
