The Allure of Medieval Romance
Medieval romance has been around for centuries. The love story of King Arthur, Lancelot and Guinevere, as memorialized in "Lancelot, le Chevalier de la Charrette," an Old French poem written in the 12th century, and Wagner's composition of Tristan und Isolde are classics we never tire of. And, many of us read Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott, set in 12th-century England, when we were in school. It might surprise you to know that romance writing developed in Britain after the Norman Conquest and flourished right through the Middle Ages. But it just might be that medieval romance is experiencing a resurgence today. See more of my article in USA TODAY -- HERE.
