Summary of Tristan Summary of Tristan Reviews for Tristan An Excerpt from Tristan
This medieval version of the legendary romance between Tristan and Isolde portrays Tristan as a sophisticated pre-Renaissance man.
As A. T. Hatto writes: it ‘should bring a shock of delight to those who are expecting an Arthurian romance, a Tennysonian idyll, or a Wagnerian melodrama; or who imagined that in the year AD 1210 Germany was still altogether in the Dark Ages.’
