TRISTRAM OF LYONESSE by Ruth Collier Sharpe


Email this review


An historical composite of all the Tristram and Ysolt versions- from Sir Thomas Malory on, this is a large, long work- teeming with Round Tables, gallant knights in shining armor, love potions, sorcery, Kings, Queens, court jesters, the slaying of dragons, voyages on ships and trusty steeds. This is straight never-never land, where the heroes are brave and good, the villains blackly evil, and the women beautiful as well as fragile. Throughout fair Tristram fights for his homeland, peace and Ysolt. A lush, sensual, detailed, full-bodied and adventuresome panorama that will appeal to those who wish to go back to these fabled times.
