This book was for my son. The teacher specifically recommended the transaltion by Chretien de Troyes, which is very hard to find. Amazon was the only one that had it available! We got it very promptly and it worked great for my son.

Another excellant translation by Burton Raffel, this one by a French poet who lived in the early Middle Ages. Excrllant book, not as great as Beowulf, but a very enjoyable read.
