The magnificent heritage of English poetry before Chaucer is often neglected because of difficulties with unfamiliar dialect. These translations reveal what we are missing if we ignore it. Piers Plowman belongs to the tradition of medieval allegory, but without any of the stuffiness that label suggests. It paints a vivid picture of everyday life in the 14th century with a vigour and detail which anticipates The Canterbury Tales. However, the jewel in the crown of Middle English verse is Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, here presented in the classic version by JRR Tolkien, author of The Lord of the Rings (currently being filmed). A wonderfully told story which combines suspense, fantasy, exquisite domestic detail and sensuality.

Seeing the Gawain-Poet offers the first full-length study of the descriptive art found in four medieval poems - Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl, Purity, and Patience. Generally accepted as being the work of a single author, alternately known as the Pearl- or the Gawain-poet, these fourteenth-century poems are bound together in British Museum Cotton Nero A.x. Readers of the poems rarely fail to admire their descriptive art - the minutely detailed and precisely visualized depictions of costume, landscape, interior furnishings, or storms at sea. It is Sarah Stanbury's achievement to place the poet's use of visual detail in an illuminating, new interpretive context. Sarah Stanbury examines the Gawain-poet's extraordinary powers of physical description and the ways in which the poems focus on the moment and act of vision. With equal adeptness, she grounds her discussion in medieval aesthetics, contemporary narrative theory, and iconographic study to explore the ways in which the poet consistently uses description as a narrative tool for dramatizing the limitations of human experience and knowledge. In a speculative conclusion, Stanbury explores some of the anxieties about sight and knowledge as reflected in English mysticism and contemporary intellectual life and as represented in poetry. Through a comparison of the Gawain-poet's visualized descriptive art with that of his contemporaries, particularly Chaucer, her study concludes that the Gawain-poet was unique among English poets of this time in consistently using a focused visual poetics as a mode of description and as a mode of thought.

Readings in Medieval Poetry is a linked collection of essays on such poems as the Song of Roland, King Horn, Havelok, Sir Orfeo, Chaucer's Book of the Duchess, House of Fame and Troilus and Criseyde, the alliterative Morte Arthure, The Siege of Jerusalem, Purity, Pearl, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and Piers Plowman. The connecting purpose is to open up a variety of kinds of medieval poetry to modern readers; and, while the methods used vary with the kinds of poetry being discussed, they frequently involve, along with historical treatments in terms of medieval practices and systems of ideas, the adoption and adaptation of theoretical frameworks borrowed from outside the medieval field.
