This poem really deserves a much higher rating that this, and I love the Early English Text Society; but the edition is just so old--this is a reprint of the 1871 edition--that it's just wiser to use, for example, Larry D. Benson's edition, King Arthur's Death; The Middle English Stanzaic Morte Arthur and Alliterative Morte Arthure. One advantage this edition has is the marginal glosses, that allow you to find the passages you want very quickly.

I forget which version of the alliterative morte arthure I read, but I seem to recall (read it in 1989) that Arthur was fighting the Romans.
