The World’s Best English Epic Poetry – Scott’s Bridal of Triermain

The World's Best English Epic Poetry Banner

The world’s best English epic and narrative poetry is not complete without Scott’s The Bridal of Triermain. This poem celebrates the exploits of a knight errant – Sir Roland De Vaux – as he seeks to rescue – and hopefully espouse – the beautiful maiden, Gyneth. Gyneth herself is an illegitimate daughter of King Arthur: doomed by Merlin 500 years previously to abide in an enchanted sleep inside a magic castle for causing a decimation amongst the knights of Arthur’s Round Table.

  • Will Sir Roland De Vaux win through the many hidden snares scattered throughout the magic castle which forms Gyneth’s prison?
  • Will Gyneth – upon awakening from her enchanted sleep – repent the death of so many brave knights: whose spilt blood stained the tourneying ground over five generations ago?
