Gerould's Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a dignified version of the tale with attention given to translation into easy to read prose, instead of lines attempting to duplicate the Pearl poet's structure or alliterative sound scheme.
The end section is a supplementary series of notes on the translation work and is very informative, covering issues important to understanding Sir Gawain and the Green Knight up to the time of this books publication..
