Summary
"An impressive and challenging survey of the five poems attributed to the poet known as the Gawain Poet, Bowers presents the principal critical issues in Gawain, Pearl, Cleanness, Patience, and St. Erkenwald, with special attention to the poems' relation to contemporary political and social events." -- J. Stephen Russell, Hofstra University. ". . . Bowers surveys an expanded selection of the works of Chaucer's anaoymous contemporary, considering Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and Pearl alongside the poet's lesser-known but no less brilliant works." -- P.
