A translation of three medieval tales. "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" is a romance, and "Pearl" is an elegy on the death of a child. They are two poems by an unknown author written in about 1400. "Sir Orfeo" is a slighter romance which belongs to an earlier and different tradition.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
