Two remarks:

  • The text reads "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a 1975 translation", which can't be true, 'cause Tolkien died in 1973.
  • The paragraph on Sir Orfeo ends unfinished.

In my opinion, there shouldn't be so information on this page on the three texts published in the collection. It's better to just link to separate pages, which can include more accurate info on the history and contents of the texts, and their various publications. In case you are short of time, Earendilyon, I'll add to my worklist (since I'm working quite a lot with the bibliography of TG). --Morgan 08:26, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
That 1975 comment seems to be a relic from the original page, "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight", before it was merged with the other two.
The separate stories are currently redirects to this page. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 08:39, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
Good. Ederchil, will you be writing something for the separate stories or should I try to do something later? --Morgan 08:45, 24 May 2010 (UTC)

We now seem to miss an article on Tolkien's actual translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight as Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (translation) redirects to this page, while the 1925 edition is no translation, but a publication of the actual 14th century text. ~ Earendilyon 20:40, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
