Comments Tristan and Isolde

  • Neil

    This is the same Arthur Hatto translation of Tristan that is published in the Penguin Classics series, but updated and revised by Francis Gentry and given a new forward and introduction, plus a nice sturdy hardcover binding.On the negative side, Hatto's essays and translation of Thomas' Tristan are gone, but I can live with that and much prefer a more modern updated translation and a binding that won't fall apart after a couple of reads.For the story of Tristan, Gottfried adapts the Courtly vers [...]

Tristan is your hero archetype he's the King's son/nephew figur [...]

    Tristan and Isolde was written approximately in the 12th century and is considered to be one of the main sources of inspiration for the Arthurian legend of Lancelot and Guinevere. It is the story of a Cornish knight and Irish princess who engage in an adulterous affair against their better judgement.The writing is very flowery; it can get tedious at times. But it's a classic, so I'd recommend reading it so you have some cultural literacy under your belt. Besides, considering the amount of influe [...]
