J.R.R. Tolkien's translation of the fourteenth-century anonymous narrative poem effectively preserves the alliterative verse of the original. That alone makes it a great resource for students, teachers and general listeners enjoying this classic. Sir Gawain is a young knight who must prove his valor, piety and courtesy when confronted with a succession of temptations. Terry Jones performs the text well, conveying but not overemphasizing the musical quality of the verse. Tape 2 concludes with the added bonus (not mentioned on the package) of Tolkien's background essay and introduction to the work. G.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
