Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
After the fall of Troy, we are told, various heroes left to build cities. This brief introduction ends with the poet telling us he will relate a story he heard told in a hall about a great Arthurian adventure. The knights of the Round Table join Arthur in the holiday celebrations, and Queen Guinevere presides in their midst. The gigantic knight has a beautiful face and figure. Every piece of his elaborate costume is green, with flourishes of gold embossing. His huge horse is green, and his green hair and beard are woven together with gold thread.

This new verse translation uses a modern alliterative pattern which subtly echoes the music of the original at the same time as it strives for fidelity.
