No description available, On August Charlemagne s army was returning from a successful expedition against Saracen Spain when its rearguard was ambushed in a remote Pyrenean pass Out of this skirmish arose a stirring tale of war which was recorded in the oldest extant epic poem in French The Song of Roland written by an unknown poet tells of Charlemagne s warrior nephew Lord of the Breton Marches who valiantly leads his men into battle against the Saracens but dies in the massacre defiant to the end In majestic verses the battle becomes a symbolic struggle between Christianity and Islam while Roland s last stand is the ultimate expression of honour and feudal values of twelfth century France, i Sir Gawain and the Green Knight i and i Pearl i are two poems by an unknown author written in about i Sir Gawain i is a romance a fairy tale for adults full of life and colour but it is also much more than this being at the same time a powerful moral tale which examines religious and social values br br i Pearl i is apparently an elegy on the death of a child a poem pervaded with a sense of great personal loss but like i Gawain i it is also a sophisticated and moving debate on much less tangible matters br br i Sir Orfeo i is a slighter romance belonging to an earlier and different tradition It was a special favourite of Tolkien s The three translations represent the complete rhyme and alliterative schemes of the originals, For students of Middle English Andrew and Waldronincluded on a CD ROM at the back of the book for students to use as a working tool This timely revision ensures the continued quality and consummate translation that students and scholars have come to expect from the Andrew Waldron edition
