Summary

First appearing around 1400, The Death of King Arthur is one of the most widely beloved and spectacularly alliterative poems penned in Middle English. While it is more than six centuries old, this magisterial new translation has finally given American readers the ability to experience the splendor and poignancy of the original. Echoing the lyrical passion that so distinguished Seamus Heaney's Beowulf, Simon Armitage has produced a virtuosic translation of a timeless masterpiece, one that follows Arthur's bloody conquests across Europe, all the way to his spectacular and even bloodier downfall. This unparalleled presentation of the greatest Arthurian tale promises to become the definitive edition for generations to come.

Author Biography

Simon Armitage has published ten volumes of poetry, including his translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. He lives in Yorkshire, England, is a professor of poetry at the University of Sheffield, and in 2010 was awarded the CBE for services to poetry.
