Language and imagination in the Gawain poems

J. J. Anderson

Published by Manchester University Press

Manchester Medieval Literature and Culture MUP

  • The most substantial literary study of this famous group of fourteenth-century poems - 'Pearl', 'Cleanness', 'Patience' and 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight' - to be published for thirty years
  • Bases its ideas on the poems themselves, and their use of language, rather than one particular theory or approach
  • Offers radically new ways of looking at the Gawain poems, whilst taking full account of recent scholarly and critical work on them
  • Written in a straightforward, jargon-free, student-friendly style
  • As these poems are set as standard on undergraduate medieval literature courses, it should become essential reading for students
