Enriching the Legend—Tristan and Isolde

Lecture no. 16 from the course: King Arthur: History and Legend

Enriching the Legend—Tristan and Isolde

Taught by Professor Dorsey Armstrong | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

The Celtic legend of Tristan and Isolde was assimilated as a key element of the Arthurian tradition. Study the narrative of the Tristan story as it emerged in two distinct literary traditions, and grasp how the story’s appeal led to Sir Tristan being “co-opted” as a knight of the Round Table.
