Sir Gawain and the Green Knight by Burton Raffel

King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table are in the middle of a Christmas feast when a green-skinned knight offers them a simple but deadly challenge. A challenge the brave Sir Gawain quickly-and fatefully-accepts. Brilliantly translated by distiguished poet Burton Raffel, this is a lyrical, accessible version of one of the most beloved tales in Arthurian literature.

First off i would like to say that the book, though hard to understand due to the syntax, was thoroughly interesting and kept you always on edge. Just when you think all is well, a man dares someone to chop his head off, and gets just that. What amazes me the most about this book is how each heroic character moves as if he is a god venturing through the land. Everyone is brought to life in "Sir Gawain And The Green Night." I recommend this book to anyone with an interest with classic 15th century literature as it gives off the same vibe of Beowulf and Ironclad.
