C. S. Lewis’s Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

C. S. Lewis’s Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

Gawain-Poet, ed. J. R. R. Tolkien and E. V. Gordon

1925

Oxford, England

Printed Book

C. S. Lewis (1898–1963) taught English at Magdalen College, Oxford from 1925 to 1954; this is his own copy of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. The text was edited by J. R. R. Tolkien and E. V. Gordon, and in revised form is still in print. Lewis has glossed the poem in detail, and here has drawn and annotated a knight’s armour as a key to the technical vocabulary used by the poet for the arming of Sir Gawain, as he prepares to set out in search of the mysterious Green Knight.
