The Knight on His Quest

£50.00

Product description

This work offers an integrated interpretative analysis of the major thematic aspects of the fourteenth-century English romance 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight'. The methodological and theoretical landscape of medieval literary studies, the narrative structure, the significance of green, the famous pentangle, Gawain's threefold testing and temptation, and the beheading motif are discussed.

The book has black boards and gilt titles. Corners and spine ends are lightly rubbed and there is a small grey mark, approx. 5mm. on the leading text block edge. The jacket front has an area tinged with light pink, and there is some surface rubbing wear to corners and spine ends; edges are lightly creased, with a couple of small nicks, and there is a closed tear, approx. 1.5cm, to the rear upper edge.

An ideal item for anyone with an interest in medieval literature and poetry.
