Courier Corporation, 01.01.2004 - 292 Seiten
Here, in a dazzling panoply, are the legendary figures from the age of chivalry: King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table, Robin Hood, Richard the Lionhearted and his crusaders, and a host of other famous and lesser-known characters. This collection includes tales from Camelot, dramatic narratives from The Mabinogeon, and stories of the noble warriors of English history. Bulfinch's skillful storytelling not only relates these ancient myths and legends but also discusses their roles in literature and art, with numerous allusions to poetry and paintings. Generations of children and adults have thrilled to these timeless tales, and young readers can find no better introduction to the enchantment of medieval myths and legends.Dover (2004) republication of "The Age of Chivalry, Or Legends of King Arthur" from "Bulfinch's Mythology: The Age of Fable, The Age of Chivalry, Legends of Charlemagne," originally published by Crosby, Nichols, Boston, 1859.
