Tristan and Iseult by Rosemary SutcliffA sailor sings a mocking song that offends Isolde. She casts a spell upon the ship, summoning the sea and death to rise up and to devour all on board. As she raised his sword to take vengeance and murder him, their eyes met, and love was born instead. Now, she is being ushered to a fate she does not want and cannot believe he wants either. She could use the love draught to bind her and King Marke. But Isolde has something else in mind: a death potion for herself and Tristan. The crew prepare the ship for arrival.
Tristan and Isolde
This article's lead section does not adequately summarize key points of its contents. A strange knight so pleases Mark with his rote-playing that he offers him anything he wants as a reward.

TRISTAN AND ISOLDE - Tristan and Iseult by Joseph Bedier - complete unabridged audiobook - ROMANCE
Tristan and Iseult is a romance story, retold in numerous sources with as many variations since the 12th century. The story is a tragedy about the adulterous love between the Cornish knight Tristan Tristram, etc. The narrative predates and most likely influenced the Arthurian romance of Lancelot and Guinevere , and has had a substantial impact on Western art and literature. While the details of the story differ from one author to another, the overall plot structure remains much the same. The story and character of Tristan vary from author to author; even the spelling of his name varies a great deal, although "Tristan" is the most popular spelling. Nevertheless, there are two main traditions of the Tristan legend.
