A collection of three medieval English poems, translated by Tolkien for the modern-day reader and containing romance, tragedy, love, sex and honour. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and Pearl are two poems by an unknown author written in about 1400. Sir Gawain is a romance, a fairy-tale for adults, full of life and colour; but it is also much more than this, being at the same time a powerful moral tale which examines religious and social values.

Pearl is apparently an elegy on the death of a child, a poem pervaded with a sense of great personal loss: but, like Gawain it is also a sophisticated and moving debate on much less tangible matters. Sir Orfeo is a slighter romance, belonging to an earlier and different tradition. It was a special favourite of Tolkien's.

J. R. R. Tolkien was born in South Africa in 1892. After serving as a lieutenant in the First World War, he had a distinguished academic career and was recognised as one of the finest philologists in the world (philology is the study of literature). He held numerous professorships, and was awarded many prestigious prizes. He died in 1973.
The Hobbit, Professor Tolkien's first published work, begins the tale which continues with the three much longer volumes of The Lord of the Rings. It started as a family story told to his children in the 1930s - and once published it met with instant success. It has been in print in a variety of different editions ever since.

"A finely written saga of dwarves and elves, fearsome goblins and trolls... an exciting epic of travel and magical adventure, all working up to a devastating climax." Observer

"A flawless masterpiece." The Times
