'The Alliterative Morte Arthure' - the title given to a 4000 line poem written sometime around 1400 - was part of a medieval Arthurian revival. Simon Armitage's new translation restores a neglected masterpiece of story-telling, by bringing vividly to life its entirely medieval mix of ruthlessness and restraint.
Translated from the Middle English.
