The Gawain Poet (Writers and Their Work (Paperback))
- Publish Date: 2000-01-15
- Binding: Paperback
- Author: Steve Burrow
This book treats separately all four poems: Pearl, Cleanness, Patience and Sir Gawain. There are also chapters on: the history of the poems and their rediscovery; alliterative verse; and what little is known about the author. The main emphasis falls on interpretation, and on such explanations as a modern reader may require. All quotations cited from the poems are translated as well.
