R. R. Tolkien's translation ofSir Gawain and the Green Knight, and Edward Seidensticker's translation of Shikibu'sThe Tale of Genji. Major works appear in their entirety--a verse translation ofThe Epic of Gilgamesh, Homer'sOdyssey, Dante'sInferno, and Achebe'sThings Fall Apart, among others--along with extensive, teachable selections from longer works such asDon Quixoteand both parts of Geothe'sFaust.
