About this product
Synopsis
Contents include: Beowulf, The Dream of Maxen Wledig, The Story of Constantine and Elene, The Compassion of Constantine, Havelok the Dane, Howard the Halt, Roland, the Hero of Early France, The Countess Cathleen, Cuchulain, the Champion of Ireland, The Tale of Gamelyn, William of Cloudeslee, Black Colin of Loch Awe, The Marriage of Sir Gawayne, King Horn, Robin Hood and Hereward the Wake. "In refashioning, for the pleasure of readers of the twentieth century, these versions of ancient tales which have given pleasure to story-lovers of all centuries from the eighth onward, I feel that some explanation of my choice is necessary. Men's conceptions of the heroic change with changing years, and vary with each individual mind; hence it often happens that one person sees in a legend only the central heroism, while another sees only the inartistic details of medieaval life which tend to disguise and warp the heroic quality."
