Sir Gawain and the Green Knight: A New Verse Translation

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight - Unknown, W.S. Merwin While I'm not able to comment on other translations with any expertise, I found this translation to be excellent. The story still carries all the power with some moving verse (not too mention, of course, the plot line). This will be a translation I return to again and again as the beauty of the language makes this worth lingering over.
