Книга: J.R.R. Tolkien «Sir Gawain and the Green Knight»
Производитель: "HarperCollins Publishers"
Серия: "Tolkien paperbacks"
This book presents a collection of three medieval English poems, translated by Tolkien for the modern-day reader and containing romance, tragedy, love, sex and honour.`Sir Gawain`and`The Green Knight and Pearl`are two poems by an unknown author written in about 1400.`Sir Gawain`is a romance, a fairy-tale for adults, full of life and colour; but it is also much more than this, being at the same time a powerful moral tale which examines religious and social values.`Pearl`is apparently an elegy on the death of a child, a poem pervaded with a sense of great personal loss: but, like`Gawain`it is also a sophisticated and moving debate on much less tangible matters.`Sir Orfeo`is a slighter romance, belonging to an earlier and different tradition. It was a special favourite of Tolkien`s. The three translations represent the complete rhyme and alliterative schemes of the originals.
