Description
First appearing around 1400, The Alliterative Morte Arthure, or The Death of King Arthur, is one of the most spectacular poems ever written in Middle English. Only one copy of the anonymous manuscript exists, held in the gatehouse library of Lincoln Cathedral. Following up his superb translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, British poet Simon Armitage renders the poignant deaths of Arthur's loyal knights, his own final hours, and his subsequent burial in unflinching and gory verse, while delighting in the wordplay and verbal rhythms of the original text (presented in parallel).

"Take heart, brave literary warriors. Norton has published ... Simon Armitage's spectacular translation of The Death of King Arthur. The celebrated British writer renders this anonymous poem into modern English lines that command your full allegiance."Washington Post
