Harold the Dauntless

Gelesen von Nathan

(3 Sterne; 3 Bewertungen)

Harold the Dauntless is a rhymed, romantic, narrative-poem by Sir Walter Scott. Written in 1817, it weaves together elements of popular English legends and folklore using dramatic themes.

The poem recounts the exploits and the personal spiritual journey of a doubtful knight errant - Harold the son of Danish Count Witikind: who seeks to recover his lands and wed a suitable spouse.

Fire-breathing Harold is as much a stranger to love as he is addicted to dangerous adventure: yet his own confrontations with the spirit-world shake his faith in supposed omnipotence of the traditional Norse pantheon.

Can a blood-thirsty warrior like Harold ever feel the raptures of love?

Can a man born to cherish gods of war really wish to exchange them for a God of peace?

SHOULD HAVE BEEN AN ENJOYABLE LISTEN, BUT...

(4 Sterne)

The volume was too soft and the reader as either too close to the mic or thr gain was set too high. Scott's poetry is always well done.
