Ivanhoe

(Storpocket)
Beskrivning:

One of the BBC's '100 Novels That Shaped Our World'

'Fight on, brave knights! Man dies, but glory lives!'



Banished from England for seeking to marry against his father's wishes, Ivanhoe joins Richard the Lion Heart on a crusade in the Holy Land. On his return, his passionate desire is to be reunited with the beautiful but forbidden lady Rowena, but he soon finds himself playing a more dangerous game as he is drawn into a bitter power struggle between the noble King Richard and his evil and scheming brother John. The first of Scott's novels to address a purely English subject, Ivanhoe is set in a highly romanticized medieval world of tournaments and sieges, chivalry and adventure where dispossessed Saxons are pitted against their Norman overlords, and where the historical and fictional seamlessly merge.

'One of the most exciting stories in the language' A. N. Wilson

Edited with an introduction and notes by Graham Tulloch
