Blood and guts galore,
This review is from: The Death of King Arthur (Hardcover)
This is not quite as good as Armitage's version of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight - as far as content and level of sophistication are concerned - but that is the fault of the original medieval poem which I seem to remember from my student days was regarded very much as a second-rate text. But if you like Armitage's robust and athletic style and rich word-hoard you will not be disappointed.
