A bilingual edition of the Middle English romance.

The Middle English text is that prepared by J.R.R. Tolkien and E.V. Gordon for their scholarly edition (as amended by Norman Davis in 1967).

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight: A New Verse Translation was first published in the United States by Alfred A. Knopf in 2002.
