Triangle Tolkienists Meetup
Join us at Quail Ridge Books for a discussion of J.R.R. Tolkien's translation of the medieval work, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Additional optional reading is Tolkien's The Fall of Arthur; it is an incomplete translation, but the book also contains a section on the work's relation to the Quenta Silmarillion.
SIR GAWAIN AND THE GREEN KNIGHT, PEARL, and SIR ORFEO are masterpieces of a remote and exotic age--the age of chivalry and wizards, knights and holy quests. Yet it is only in the unique artistry and imagination of J.R.R. Tolken that the language, romance, and power of these great stories comes to life for modern readers, in this masterful and compelling new translation.
