A very helpful volume for the study and appreciation of the fine poem whose sources and descendents it explores. All academic levels. CHOICE The intertextuality of this brilliant poem can be more fully understood through Elisabeth Brewer's presentation of modern English versions of themes familiar from Gawain and the Green Knight beheading, seduction and other traditional material from a range of medieval writings. Her book is a delightful and unusual small anthology of medieval literature, but its greatest success lies in providing a context for a fuller understanding of Sir Gawain, through its presentation of extracts and poems (including translation from Celtic and French originals) illustrating the traditionin which the Gawain-poet wrote. It is both an introduction to the poem and a useful tool for critical comparison. Items trebled since the publication in 1975 of its predecessor From Cuchulainn to Gawain. ELISABETH BREWERlectured in English at Homerton College, Cambridge.
