Review:

‘The introduction to Gawain is a little masterpiece.’
Times Higher Educational Supplement

‘This magnificent Arthurian tale of love, sex, honour, social tact, personal integrity and folk-magic is one of the greatest and most approachable narrative poems in the language. Tolkien’s version makes it come triumphantly alive, a moving and consoling elegy.’
Birmingham Post

Review:

“The publishers deserve thanks for these recordings, which open a window on the mediaeval world. As precious in their way as the Elgin Marbles, these poems unquestionably belong to us and our culture.”
Gramophone 1/11/97
