this is actually a review of a recent translation of Pearl, but captures the poem's central tension very well:

There are some good articles on the relationship between the Dreamer and the Pearl. They can be downloaded  if you type their titles into the JSTOR database, which can be accessed from any Wits computer (https://www.wits.ac.za/library/online-resources/databases/):
