Overview

One of the great treasures of the British Library, this 14th-century poem is a work of brilliance. This new translation remakes the imaginative intensity of the original, in which a father sees his lost daughter on the far bank of a river in a dream landscape radiant with jewels. An account of loss and consolation that retains its force across six centuries, this version is a unique encounter between medieval tradition and an acclaimed modern poet.
