Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First of all, this is not a review of the poem (it's alright as far as Arthurian stories go); rather, it's a review of the edition. The biggest problem I had was a lack of a glossary in the back. For those who are unfamiliar with Middle English the original text becomes sort of an annoying visual aid or historical oddity as the translation dominates one's reading. I think it could have been made much better by original text side-glossed, with translations at the bottom of the page if needed. That would actually encourage people to learn Middle English as opposed to looking at it, thinking it looks pretty or quaint and then reading the translation.

I also think a side-by-side printing of both manuscripts would have been helpful as well. I believe TEAMS makes an edition like this with the entire Brut but I'm not sure.

Bottom line: pretty good edition, but it could be a bit better for both the serious student and the newcomer to Middle English.
