Like Seamus Heaney's Beowulf, this new translation of a classic promises to revive one of the greatest characters of medieval literature.

James Simpson’s translation of the late-middle-English version restores Reynard as part of a tradition that extends to Animal Farm. With all new illustrations, "Reynard the Fox is the animal fable’s version of Homer’s Odyssey" (Stephen Greenblatt).
