reviewed The Romance of Tristan and Iseult on
"One of the most famous stories in the world, set forth in a reconstruction which is itself a masterpiece of French literature. It is of such beauty, such force, such emotional appeal that the work was crowned at once by the French Academy. . ." New York Herald Tribune

"The first complete English edition, brilliantly translated by Hilaire Belloc and Paul Rosenfeld. . . throughout it retains the beauty and sense of fatality that have made it one of legendary literature's most fascinating tales." Time magazine
