Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
A New Verse TranslationBook - 1967
Here, at last, a finely sensitive translation gives us the poem itself, not just a translator's impression, for Marie Borroff's translation successfully preserves the formulaic character of the language, reflects the diction of the original poem, and reproduces the metrical variety of the original and its cumulative momentum or 'swing.'
