A Collection of Ballads


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4 stars; 1 reviews)

This is a collection of ballads, edited, with an introduction and notes by Andrew Lang. The ballads range widely in style, from the historic to the romantic, from the short to the epic, from Scotland to France. Some of the material is the fabric of well-known fairy-tales, others have a historical core, and again others are myths. In any case, every reader and listener should be able to find a poem in this collection that matches their particular style or mood. - Summary by Carolin (6 hr 25 min)
