   T99-Poetry    


Stretching deep into the Pennines, the Grand Imperial Municipality of Clagsborough straddles the confluence of the rivers Claggy and Hengment in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The fingertips of three other conurbations sit just out of reach of its ancient triskelion valley: Hopplesdale to the west; Lower Wharram to the north west; with the city of Fuggley-on-Aire to the south.

This long-awaited Norton Critical Edition of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight includes Marie Borroff’s celebrated, newly revised verse translation with supporting materials not to be found in any other single volume.

The text is accompanied by a detailed introduction, an essay on the metrical form, the translator’s note, marginal glosses, and explanatory annotations to assist readers in the study of this canonical Arthurian romance.

"Contexts” presents two French tales of Sir Gawain and a passage from the Alliterative Morte Arthure, also translated by Marie Borroff, as well as three selections from the original Middle English poem.

“Criticism” collects ten interpretive essays on the poem’s central themes. Contributors include Alain Renoir, Marie Borroff, J. A. Burrow, A. Kent Hieatt, W. A. Davenport, Ralph Hanna III, Lynn Staley Johnson, Jonathan Nicholls, Geraldine Heng, and Leo Carruthers.

A Chronology of important historical and literary dates and a Selected Bibliography are also included.

I am a Muslim Anarcho-feminist: earth-universe is my home; humankind my family; the libraries of the world are my mind; a mother's tears my heart; the qur'an my soul; non-violence my creed; peace and justice my purpose; dialogue, education and critical reflection my toolbox.

Four Horsemen, Ross Ashcroft, 2012

Twenty-three leading thinkers explain how the world really works and the fundamental flaws in the economic system which have brought our civilization to the brink of disaster. The film pulls no punches in describing the consequences of continued inaction – but its message is one of hope. If more people can equip themselves with a better understanding of how the world really works, then the systems and structures that condemn billions to poverty or chronic insecurity can at last be overturned.
