Sir Gawain and The Green KnightThe Unmissable Middle English Chivalric Romance

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is an epic poem written in the late 14th century by an unknown author, often dubbed the “Gawain poet”. This book features the 1869 edition, with an introduction by editor Richard Morris.

A celebrated literary classic of the chivalric romance genre.


‘And wonder, dread and war

have lingered in that land

where loss and love in turn

have held the upper hand.’


The story describes how Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur's Round Table, accepts a challenge from a mysterious "Green Knight" who dares any knight to strike him with his axe if he will take a return blow in a year and a day. An enduring masterpiece and early example of the chivalric literary tradition, and an unmissable read.
