Perlo: from Middle English to Esperanto

Newly arrived in the shop is a translation into Esperanto by Marjorie Boulton of Pearl, a late 14th-century Middle English poem that is considered one of the most important surviving Middle English works.

The manuscript, arduously produced over the course of two years' worth of Sundays translating a poem that the author herself considered untranslatable, was found by Edmund Grimley Evans amongst Marjorie Boulton's affairs after her death. The 1212 original Middle English verses are presented in parallel with the masterful Esperanto translation across 101 stanzas.
