      In An Introduction to the Gawain Poet, John Bowers surveys an expanded selection of the works of Chaucer's anonymous contemporary, considering Sir Gawain and the Green Knight alongside the poet's lesser known but no less brilliant works. In addition to his succinct introductions and plot summaries, Bowers skillfully details the cultural, historical, political, and religious contexts for these Pages: Written probably in the late s, The Book of Margery Kempe is one of the most astonishing documents of late medieval English life.

    This book is an introduction to the Gawain-poet's four surviving works: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Patience, Pearl, and purpose is to make all four poems accessible to students by setting the poet and his works in their relevant historical and cultural context, and, above all, by developing some lines of critical argument that, I think, bring out the best in the Gawain-poet.   The Gawain-poet does, as Bunting observes, use allegory (including metaphor and symbolism), but he actually uses it to ‘[draw] readers into active response to the story’ (Anderson). Part of the richness of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight lies in .

Here the distinguished author and poet John Gardner has captured the humor, elegance, and richness of the original Middle English in flowing modern verse translations of this literary.
