The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop


Simon Armitage’s acclaimed version of ‘Sir Gawain and the Green Knight’ garnered front-page reviews across two continents and confirmed his reputation as a leading translator. This is an entrancing allegorical tale of grief and lost love, as the narrator is led on a Dantean journey through sorrow to redemption by his vanished beloved, Pearl. Retaining all the alliterative music of the original, a Medieval English poem thought to be by the same anonymous author responsible for ‘Gawain’, ‘Pearl’ is here brought to vivid and intricate life.
