An epic poem of honor and bravery written by an anonymous fourteenth-century poet, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is recognized as an equal of Chaucer's masterworks and of the great Old English poems, including Beowulf . It is Christmas in Camelot, and a truly royal feast has been laid out for King Arthur and his knights. And though there is plenty of good cheer to go around, the festivities hardly begin before a monstrous, axe-wielding, green-skinned knight barges in. He has come to see the famous Knights of the Round Table and offer them a simple but deadly challenge--a challenge taken on by the brave Sir Gawain--a challenge that will force him to choose between his honor and his life... Includes a Preface by Burton Raffel an Introduction by Brenda Webster and an Afterword by Neil D. Isaacs
