The Song of Roland

Edited and translated by Simon Gaunt and Karen Pratt

Oxford World's Classics

  • A new prose translation into English of the Oxford version of the Chanson de Roland, together with new translations of two other medieval French epic poems, Daurel et Beton and Le Voyage de Charlemagne
  • A lively and idiomatic new translation of a key cultural artefact
  • Brief but clear and informative introduction for the general reader, drawing on the latest scholarship
  • Sets the Roland alongside two far less well known texts that provide contextual information likely to be completely new to the book's readership
  • Includes a glossary of technical terms, an index of proper names, and a select bibliography
